Thanks to the reader who sent the shot above of Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg as a Greenpoint Challenge entry. It shines, though, in showing the steel now appearing all over the neighborhood as a crapload of developments go from the demolition phase to construction. The pic above shows 100 N. 3rd (the steel), 129 Metropolitan (the hole beyond), which is a 13-unit, 6 story building, and the future movie theater on Metropolitan across the street. It's a great companion to a photo of more rising steel on N. 4th Street after the jump.

That's a new condo at 161 N. 4th that has recently sprouted steel. There's another building behind it at 170 N. 5th that should get its steel on soon, too.
