In the hipster havens Greenpoint and Williamsburg, development steams ahead at a fevered pitch. (Notes Brownstoner, "The Finger Building at 144 North 8th, rendered here, has provoked particular ire from local residents while other developments like 20 Bayard Street have carried on the nabe's legacy for shoddy construction practices.")
Comes the crowning blow. A Curbed reader sends along this image of a possible development on North 9th Street advertised as a "Commercial/Hotel development." Notes our correspondent, "A Williamsburg hotel? It was bound to happen sometime... The very last straw."
