Quicklink: Honey Smacks

WGNAscChoice quote/excerpt:

…So residents of Greenpoint and Williamsburg, do you want Cheerios (real affordable housing at income levels that residents that are so desperate for a affordable home can afford) or Honey Smacks that the non-binding agreements by the Bloomberg administration and the City Council created. If you look at the tower plan from the 77 Commercial Street Environmental Assessment Statement, it lays out affordable housing which is out of reach to most residents and yet it’s heavily subsidized…

Subsidized = our tax dollars are paying for affordable housing that is not, in fact, affordable. Those of you who want to read a concise, easy to follow breakdown as to why affordable housing as put forth by Two Trees and Clipper Equities (77 Commercials Street) is little more than smoke and mirrors— among many other things— please do give this tome a read. It is time well spent.

I hope all is well. Opinions on the new Domino development?

I’ve made a serious effort lately to document as much as possible while it’s still there. I also made a stop motion video I think you’ll get a good laugh out of, if nothing else. Feel free to post if you enjoy it!

Done! As for the new Domino design: if I didn’t know better, I’d swear it was plucked from the pages of The Onion. Of course, there’s renderings and reality. In north Brooklyn the two rarely match.

A fellow named Max writes (in an email entitled “some very shitty content for you”):

I made my way into the neighboring Domino Sugar Factory the other day, and bring you this video…

Actually this video is not shitty at all. In fact I’d say this it is pretty darned cool. Give it a watch and make your own call!

Domino Sugar Rush – exploring Williamsburg’s sweetest decay from 2e. on Vimeo.

In October of this year Two Trees Management Co. successfully purchased the iconic sugar factory for $185 million. Get an inside look at one of the most fascinating places in Brooklyn before its gutted, polished up and dwarfed by 40-story glass towers on all sides.

From Kent Avenue (across the street from the soon-to-be- converted Domino Sugar Factory, whose residential conversion will undoubtedly work wonders for north Brooklyn’s already over-burdened subway system).
