From The New York Shitty Inbox: 233 Norman To Become A Hotel?

DOBBIS233normanNYS

I kicked off my day with not one but two missives about this. Not only does it appear to be true, but the landlord has seen fit to give tenants thirty days notice and threats of eviction have been issued as well. And of course I would be remiss if I did NOT point out that north Brooklyn’s good friend, Robert Scarano— or at least his firm— will be handling the project. Not a good sign.

In any case, it’ll be interesting to see how a hotel* with rooftop terrace will fare being downwind from our local waste water treatment plant.

But hey, what do I know? As P.T. Barnum was reputed to say:

There’s a sucker born every minute.

Just another day in Greenpoint, folks…

UPDATE, 5:06 p.m.: As you can plainly see, construction has commenced.

*Perhaps this fellow is going to perpetrate a “239 Banker”? I rule nothing out as being too absurd anymore…
