The Undead: Ismael Leyva’s Fourth Ave. Masterpiece

February 5th, 2009 · 3 Comments

It’s always interesting to have confirmation that a huge planned project is indeed alive. So it is with big building designed by Ismael Leyva at 150 Fourth Avenue on the Gowanus side of dividing line. For a time the building next store had been vacated because construction work had undermined it, but that too, is now recoccupied. So all is well, at least, until people have to look at this thing. One might say that “it’s Fourth Avenue,” but the building replaces some old brick buildings that could have been beautifully rehabbed. New vision below.

    So the center strip of land in the middle of 4th ave is the boarder – divider of Park Slope and Gowanus, I’m glad we got that one squared away.

    I wonder why the buildong to the far left did not sell out? Im actually glad they didnt. I liked the old tenements so much better !!
