Set Speed drops this picture of workers prepping the scaffolding around the decrepit Underberg Building on Fifth Avenue and Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, the first of the Ratnerville buildings scheduled to be demolished. The Post reports that the demolition is slated to begin today, and should take a couple of weeks. (N.B. This is the same Underberg Building featured in Jonathan Lethem's novel Fortress of Solitude.) More on Underberg—and another pretty photo—in this December 2005 Curbed post.
