Controversial Carroll Gardens Developer Waging War on Love?

Call it the War on Love. The latest “love message” to go up on the construction fence that covered up the Carroll Gardens Democracy Wall didn’t even last 24 hours before workers scraped it off and repainted the fence. We have many questions: Will the developer get more love? Will the next poster last 24 hours? Will this riveting cat-and-mouse Love Game (now being photographed, per the pics passed along by a reader who was quick with the camera) go on and on and on? Will an anti-love message go up on the Oliver House Condo website? Will a local elected official be called in as the Henry Kissinger of Carroll Gardens, doing shuttle diplomacy between developer Billy Stein and the Love Makers? Will we be entertained by this all summer long? Stay tuned for the next installment because we feel fairly safe in saying there will be one.

    Oliver, Oliver! Never before has a boy wanted more, more, MORE! Ugh. Why doesn’t that artist who paints all the construction fences get her paint brush over here and make peace and paint us a nice thing.
