It would appear the Department of Buildings would like to have a look around 981 Manhattan Avenue. One has to wonder if the recent visit by the Fire Department 981 4 cropped nyshas anything to do with this. I suppose we’ll find out soon enough. As some of you may recall 981 Manhattan Avenue is where the Salvation Army, which has been closed since October 1st, was located. The premises proper has been for sale since September 15th. All of this is apparently news to the folks at Brownstoner. Go figure.

Cheers!

The Brooklyn “Renaissance”

The Brooklyn Renaissance

Ever wondered what Brooklyn real estate pundits and their minions talk about during a $125.00 a head breakfast? Well, gentle readers, the wait is over. Thanks to an anonymous tipster I have a twenty page transcript of yesterday’s “Brooklyn Renaissance” breakfast at Industry City. It is quite something. “Innovation Alley”, anyone?

UPDATE, October 1st, 12:43 PM: For those of you who may be interested in listening to an audio transcript of these proceedings, here you go!
