New, 1 comment


FINANCIAL DISTRICT—A tipster sent along some shots of the now-under-demolition building at 6 Water Street, where ubiquitous hotelier Sam Chang once planned on putting another of his Gene Kaufman-designed McSam Hotels.

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS—Tomorrow at noon, Brooklyn Bridge Park will unveil "a series of signs and markers throughout the park that tell the history of the Brooklyn waterfront and highlight the ecological and sustainable features of the park." The signs will be placed at intervals from Pier 1 to Pier 6 and will inform visitors of the site's history from before it became a park. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

SOUTH BROOKLYN—The Upper East Side's Marine Transfer Station might be getting all the attention, but its not the only marine transfer station that New Yorkers are rallying against. South Brooklyn residents will take to the streets on Sunday to protest a planned garbage station adjacent to Gravesend Bay, citing toxic chemicals and live munitions that could be dredged up at the site.
