Comment of the Day

Look at what they're actually doing: Razing historic structures to build parking lots for a low-end grocer (that somehow can't be built in any of the empty groundfloors or on any of the many existing parking lots in the nearby housing projects), as well as building a Brooklyn Navy Yard History Museum (no joke) ... while bulldozing the most historic and noteworthy structures there. The smart money says that they're horribly inflating the cost of preserving not only the Timber Shed but all of the Admirals Row structures -- these are fairly simple structures that clearly don't require the sort of money that, say, the Statue of Liberty needs when it's being restored."?MidtownView [Historic Timber Shed Headed for a Not-So-Watery Grave?
