New Gowanus Signage: Toll Ahead

Toll Ahead

No, not the bridge & tunnel kind of toll. This kind of Toll. A Gowanus resident sent along this photo of signage that has appeared on Bond Street and First Street, which would be close to the epicenter of the roughly 400-unit luxe development the Toll Brothers would like to build on the shores of our favorite South Brooklyn waterway. The structure on property you see in the distance on the right was demolished over the winter. There is some interest in landmarking the property on the far left, which also fall in the Toll Zone. The battle discussion continues this evening with another public session involving Community Board 6, the City Planning Department and local residents. Any irony in the above photo with “Toll” and “Dead End” in the same frame is entirely accidental.
