Gowanus Noise Complaints Get Turned Up; Public Art at Domino

CARROLL GARDENS AND GOWANUS—Neighborhood residents have turned up the volume on their complaints against clamoring construction crews working on the Lightstone Group's massive Gowanus Canal-kissing development. A tipster alerted us that on Thursday, local residents handed flyers out to passersby explaining in excruciating detail just how lawless contracted firm Lettire Construction is on the site, and what those suffering from the decibel-breaching noise can do to try and fix it. Check out the deets, at right. [CurbedWire inbox; previously]

DOMINO—Two Trees Management Company seems to be trying to establish their street cred. The development magnate has commissioned local street artists Aakash Nihalani, Hellbent, and Rubin to create a series of murals along a five-block stretch of Kent Avenue between South Fifth Street and Grand Street at the Domino Sugar site. The murals of DOMINO Walls will represent each artist's largest work to date and will partially overlap with Kara Walker's A Subtlety. Two Trees will also reopen Havemeyer Park and Brooklyn Bike Park, interim community spaces which will eventually be consumed by the company's massive development at the site.
