Just passing along some more information about the whole Gowanus area developments bag, I got a message from "Frogg" with some info about finding out just what the heck is going on these days, seems to be more and more gloom and doom.
FROGG, Friends & Residents Of Greater Gowanus meets every 3rd Monday. You can join us on March 19th when we will be meeting at the American Can Building on 3rd Street, at 3rd Ave (accross from the Whole Foods Site). Time 6:30. Check posting on doors for room location.
They say "There is much to discuss about Bond Street that goes beyond what is presently being built."
On a personal note I am very saddend by the start of the demolition of Coney Island, this whole redevelopment of Brooklyn just sucks to put it bluntly, Coney Island was one of the last bastions of cheap fun for all, a working persons seaside weekend holiday. A pox on you, Sitt & Thor Equities!!! You don't even have the heart to keep Ruby's, stay tuned for Yankee stadium hotdog and beer prices.....
