Williamsburg Photo Du Jour: Laundry Day

leonardstreet

I was asked recently by a curious citizen exactly what is slated to grace this rather sizable lot (which is located at Leonard Street and Meeker Avenue). As it would happen I know because I attend the Community Board Land Use Committee (ULURP) in which this is discussed. Prepare yourselves: it’s good news!

There will be two residential apartment buildings on this property: one will be market rate, the other affordable housing. The reason this was discussed at a “ULURP” meeting is the developer wanted permission to add residential units to the previous in exchange for building the latter. I saw the plans, materials to be used, etc., and I have to say what they have in mind is mighty nice. This is really saying something given Karl Fischer is the architect. I was especially pleased to learn the garden area they plan to build-out will be accessible to/shared by both buildings!

Heather,

I was walking down Richardson Street at 9:30am and spotted this little dog (see attached) between N.Henry and Humboldt. I’m in this area at the same time daily and have never seen this dog before. I have a feeling he might belong to someone as he seemed very friendly and followed me for a little bit (maybe looking for help). He has no collar but his coat looks like it had been shaved recently. He also has a limp, but looks like it’s from an old injury as he didn’t seem like he was in pain. It would be great if you can share on your blog. Hopefully someone will recognize the dog as belonging to someone in the area. If not, maybe he can be rescued. He seems like a really sweet little guy.
Thanks for your help!

Anyone who knows to whom this pup belongs can contact Lori via email at: lehoffman(at)gmail(dot)com

Thanks!
