This is kind of a waste. This place has been empty and boarded up for as long as I’ve seen it (and longer, well over a decade), so I looked the story up. Apparently it’s partly due to the proximity of a nearby school restricting what can be done with the space, and partly due to unrealistic expectations of the building owner. I guess so long as there are ways of writing empty fronts off as tax losses without sanctions means this situation isn’t gonna change anytime soon (see also: Bleecker street). #341grandstreet#lowereastside#grandstreet#ludlowstreet#manhattan#nypix#newyork#newyorkcity#nyc
Does anyone know about this spot? It’s to your right when you’re on grand street right before the split heading towards metropolitan avenue... just curious. 🤷🏻♀️ #Brooklyn#grandstreet#metropolitanave#nosy lol!
