This one comes as a surprise because the popular Williamsburg restaurant was just given a Michelin star.
Further proof that we can no longer have nice things. Both popular watering holes will be demolished to make room for this generic shithole. No dates have been announced for the demolition. Plans have been announced for a new seven-story office building on the Greenpoint Waterfront, and today, YIMBY has the first renderings for the […]
Remember Sandy? Developers don’t. According to Localize.city, twelve percent of New York apartments that are under contruction or have recently completed contruction are in flood zones. The worst culprits are the new buildings in Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Long Island City: More than 3,500 new apartments have been built in flood-prone parts of Williamsburg and Greenpoint […]
If you’ve been in Greenpoint recently, you’re likely already familiar with the looming monstrosity known as The Greenpoint and its ugly neighbors Stephen Levin Towers. The once-quiet neighborhood has been menaced by the construction of these new towers for the last year two years. Now, these out-of-scale condos for the rich are getting some neighbors […]
