Brand New: The Tear Down & Build Up Gallery

December 31st, 2007 · 2 Comments

The year is ending and the new year beginning in Greenwood Heights in much the same way that 2007 did: with residents keeping an eye on a new development in their neighborhood and creating an interesting model for other neighborhoods. The Greenwood Heights crew used YouTube vids documenting construction issues on development to great effect this year. In this case, it’s the demolition of a 1900 two-story home on 23rd Street and construction of new condo that is being chronicled by Concerned Citizens of Greenwood Heights. The “Tear Down & Build Up Gallery” is online. From the email we got:

As many of you know, in July of 2007, our neighbor at 312 23rd Street, Brooklyn, NY sold his circa 1900’s wood frame 2 story home to a local developer. In a nutshell, tear down the old, build up with the new. Here’s to a slightly biased documentation of the demolition of the “old” 312 23rd Street and construction of the “new” 312 23rd Street condos...AND, have photos of your own? Send them to us, and we’ll add them…And as always, if you see something fishy at 312, CALL 311, take a snapshot and let us know asap. We hope this new development site’s documentation will be a treasure to remember and not an bad-boy to forget. So far so good.

There are already a lot of photos of the process online.
