This is the 'Ikea Annex,' just up the block from the new Ikea on Beard Street. The, uh, Annex is a building that's been abandoned for a long time surrounded by a picturesque school bus parking lot. One of Curbed's many special Red Hook operatives today encountered the sign's creator at Baked. Our correspondent reports: "The guy who painted this genius sign says he's going to set up a table and chairs and, 'I might buy some stuff at Ikea to resell.'" Pre-assembled Billy Bookcases, maybe, to sell to very confused first-time Red Hook visitors.
