Toll Brothers Public Hearing with City Planning * WEDNESDAY

This was written on this building, a couple months before the "crash".
Well, with the economy as it is and with vacant condos throughout the city I am hoping the Toll Brothers will just throw in the towel on the 363-365 Bond Street condo project, just too many health and environmental risks on top of the financial ones! Toll Brothers' condos on the Williamsburg waterfront are fairly vacant and "renting to own" at this point. I hope big Daddy Robert Toll puts the final kabosh on this one, I heard he was never really keen on the city projects and that VP for Development David Von Spreckelsen had to work hard to convince him, kill it Robert!!!PLEASE!!!!

Anyway, The City Planning Commission is holding a public hearing for the Toll Brothers' project at 363-365 Bond Street . Anyone can speak their mind, please attend if you are lucky enough to be able to make it on this Tuesday morning.

The hearing is scheduled for:
January 7
22 Reade Street in Manhattan.
The public meeting begins at 10:00AM.


Happy New Year from F.I.B.....

New Year's Eve Firework in Prospect Park
In a stroke of insanity, I ventured into Prospect Park in the freezing temperatures last night. I have never gone before and it did feel cool to be close to nature at midnight, i wish my camera was able to pick up on the sillouettes of the trees in the foreground... I wish all the FI.B readers a happy, healthy, peace filled New Year. May your cupboards have some food in it and you have friends and family to lean on sometimes. Keep fighting the man for me please 'cause they are the reason everyone's lives and places like Coney Island are such a mess right now. I hope to get back to blogging more regularly, I'm working a job (which i am very THANKFUL to have) that makes it difficult to do....Happy New Year Babies!!!
