Culture on the Cheap
Affordable Housing In Greenpoint
A number of you who live south of the BQE are undoubtedly familiar with this building. It is the former station house for the 87th Precinct. What you may not know is it is slated to become affordable housing! When I walked by this —one of the most beautiful edifices the Garden Spot has to offer— this week I made a joyous discovery: it already has its first tenant!
One of the purposes of providing affordable housing is to give people of more modest means a nice place to live without having to sell the shirt of their back.
Or would that be pants? The more eagle-eyed among probably spy a bottle of vodka in the background. This is what I call living large!
Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz had it right when she said:
There’s no place like home!
