Anti-Gentrification Graffiti on New Williamsburg Development

New, 1 comment

A Curbed insider recently caught this graffiti sprayed on the outside of a new development in Williamsburg, and while it's not as creative or colorful as some of our favorite anti-yuppie diatribes, it certainly gets the point across.

The building—located at the corner of Leonard Street and Montrose Avenue, and called 73 Montrose—is five-stories, with 40 units spread over almost 30,000 square feet, plus about 2,700 square feet of space intended for community facilities. The lot was purchased by Yidel Hirsch in 2012 for $4.1 million.
