Lower East Side Good Deed The Lee Gets Its Metal Siding

New, 6 comments

Blog Bowery Boogie checks in on The Lee. When this project at East Houston and Pitt streets first came to our attention, it looked like just another 12-story manifestation of Lower East Side gentrification. But it's actually for a good cause: the development is being done by non-profit Common Ground, and when it's done, the 263-studio building will house low-income individuals, homeless people with illnesses, and young adults making the transition out of foster care. Which makes us feel bad about mocking that metal siding.
