The Finger Building Gets Thumbs Up
The Gowanus Lounge has the latest on the Williamsburg Finger Building saga and it doesn't look good for the neighborhood. Shame on the Bureau of Standards and Appeals for flipping Brooklynites the bird and letting this unsightly development at 144 N. 8th Street march on. Neighborhood activist Phil DePaolo maintains that the fight is not over against developer Mendel Brach and architect Robert Scarano, but prospects look bleak.
