Hey, remember when we said that if Russo Realty ever goes, that will be the end of Brooklyn? Welcome to the end times! The Gowanus Lounge bureau alerts us that the quirky landmark just outside the Smith-9th Street F-train stop (perhaps you've seen it on your way to the Red Hook Ball Fields, just before the mural of the diseased bald eagle) appears to be headed for destruction?imminently! Workers were seen hauling junk out of the Russo buildings, and the proof is in the permits. What's next for the Notary District? More abandoned boats with graffiti on them, we hope.
