The lot above used to be Williamsburg's Beach Russ building and will one day be Williamsburg's silvery metallic megastructure, but in the meantime, it is this?and it has Bluejake feeling introspective. He writes:
It's hard to believe such a large building could just disappear so quickly-- and contemplating the "luxury" glass condo that's going up in its place just makes me want to puke. Is this really the New York that anyone wants to live in?Ah, the famed ITRTNYTAWTLI? reaction. Well, we will say this: given the Beach Russ' Union Avenue proximity to Barcade, you're damn right we would live there. We're total sluts for a good game of Tapper.
