Former home of the William Taft, and a perfectly good laundromat. Then became the architect’s studio. Then nothing… until today, when both sides had major demolition going on inside. No permits. None. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Posted or on the DOB site.

I’m all for this space getting used for some useful commerce – or any commerce or small business – but I smell a rat.

Demolition without a permit? In Greenpoint? Say it isn’t so, C!

In all seriousness, this is hardly surprising but pretty darned disturbing given this building is landmarked. Anyone out there have the scoop on what is happening at this site? If so, please share via the comments. Thanks!

  2. I saw that this morning also. I was wishing so much that someone would put another laundromat in there, the neighborhood needs that.

  4. Agreed. Otherwise if they touch that purple aluminum siding IT’S WAR.

  6. No complaints filed, either. Call 311 – it’s a start.

Tell me what you're thinking...
