Well, the rotting hulk of a building atop which Robert Scarano was planning luxe penthouses in Williamsburg, has seen some action: the addition of grafitti that says “Hipsters Suck.” The project was the Wythe Avenue Lofts, an old industrial building at Wythe Avenue and N. 9 in Williamsburg on which work was proceeding at such a fast and furious pace at one point that there appeared to be alleged illegal after-hours and weekend work going on. And, then, suddenly, everything came to a grinding halt and a Stop Work Order has been in place for more than two years. Trees started growing out the windows (which have since been cut) and the scaffolding has been in danger of collapsing and killing someone for a long time. The Hipsters Suck Building is back on the market.
