Egypt's Great Pyramid has been around for over 4,500 years. Brooklyn's Great Pyramid never even get off the ground. As expected, the powers-that-be at Brooklyn Bridge Park have awarded conditional approval to the St. Ann's Warehouse troupe to (controversially!) redevelop the landmark Tobacco Warehouse into a year-round performing arts venue. That means the rival proposal by dance/acrobat group LAVA, a design that included dropping a golden pyramid into the topless 19th-century building, is dunzo. We will now grudgingly halt our "Walk Like an Egyptian" YouTube binge.
