The scaffolding is down at the Novo Park Slope, finally giving the full effect of developer Shaya Boymelgreen's Fourth Avenue development. The special correspondent who sent word of the de-scaffolding along with photos writes:
Novo Park Slope lost its scaffolding yesterday, revealing itself in all its hideousity. Not sure if it looks like Soviet Russian architecture at its finest, or early 1960s American Hospital.Other possibilities include a college dorm and a psychiatric facility. Regardless, a couple of days ago, Brownstoner noted that while half the building is in contract, at least some of the Novo is now available as a rental. It appears a sizable block of units is on the rental market.
