Culture on the Cheap
Ugliest. Building. Ever.
As a resident of north Brooklyn I have seen my fair share (and then some) of ugly buildings. When scouting for crapitecture to showcase on Fedders Friday I often find myself saying:
That sure is ugly. But is it ugly enough?
Today, dear readers, I found an edifice so utterly hideous I was speechless. It hails from the intersection of Fulton Street and Classon Avenue on the border between Bedford Stuyvesant and Clinton Hill. Strap on your barf bags kids, here it comes!
The first thing that struck me about this building (actually, it’s two buildings but they’re conjoined so I am treating them as one) is its apparent lack of any aesthetic sense or “plan”.
Here’s a shot of the building to the left. This architect decided to go eclectic— and by “eclectic” I mean throwing a bunch of random stuff together.
A bunch of very ugly random stuff.
What would a masterpiece of this caliber be if it was besmirched by greenery?
No worries, they’ve got it covered.
