Fugly On Franklin

Being a resident of north Brooklyn, I see a lot of ugly buildings. In terms of new construction most fall into one of two categories:

  1. Feddertecture
  2. Karl Fischer

Once in a blue moon I will happen upon a building that is neither new nor seriously modified. A structure which has been cosmetically augmented in such a manner that all I can do stand before it awestruck mumbling to myself:

What the fuck?

Yesterday on Franklin Avenue I encountered one such an edifice. Words fail to describe what I saw so pictures will have to suffice.

Behold this building at the corner of Madison Street and Franklin Avenue.

Yes that is marble, stucco and blue paneling you are looking at.

Oh my.

  6. There is something hideously seductive about it. Jimmy Legs really hit the nail on the head with the bathroom reference. I would LOVE to have a bathroom like this— albeit without the security cameras.

Tell me what you're thinking...
