wonderful news- hope the rents go up even more as the broader neighborhood becomes more gentrified and drives out all the moaners who complain about crowding and rent cost


they will be in foreclosure when they start building, it will be an eyesore for 5 to 7 years after that just a big hole with fencing and homeless people.

Here comes a huge hotel!!!!
Will the hotel provide bicycles for its patrons to get into the city since the 7 train is already overcrowded?

The building has no charm. Just ridiculous. If a cardboard box was being torn down you would wax poetic.


It’s a shame. This building has quite a lot of charm and character. There’s no way it can be repurposed? Unfortunately, I’m certain they’ll throw up some other monstrosity in its place.


mike- hope about you buy the building and keep that charm of the neighborhood alive, if you are not interested in doing that keep your opinions to your self

Amy aka cat lady why such the hostility? Get a hobby or a man. Comments are there to voice our opinions. I guess they didn’t teach that while you where getting your GED.

Amy is right- all you ever do is complain about developers and the cost of rent & how they are tearing down the neighbourhood…its called progress. its an ugly brick building with metal grates over the bottom windows if thats what you call charm then go back to the eastern bloc.purchase your own damn building with all the characteristics that you seem to think have character. Good lord what a pack of do nothing moaners you lot are.
