Culture on the Cheap
From The North Brooklyn Community Group*: Open House!
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Greenwich Village
Your eyes are not deceiving you, Greenpointers. This weekend there will be an open house at 239 Banker Street! Those of you who are curious to see what an illegal residential conversion in an Industrial Business Zone looks like (or simply want to ask Mr. McHale a lot of really uncomfortable questions about the legal status and history of this building) this is your golden opportunity!
Tell him New York Shitty sent you.
*Here’s what a member of said forum (a real estate agent, no less) had to say when I pointed out these lofts are NOT legally allowable for residential use:
Well damn. At some point they’re gonna have to tell them that the space is not zoned for living. Its gonna say it right on the lease!
