Yeah I was/am quite surprised by the blandness of this one, seems more fitting for LIC since all their buildings are boring. Brooklyn definitely has the more “stand out” architecture in terms of differentiation and use of colors.

@TKDV @Alemel It’s beyond parochial.

In the Greek of the New Testament, the word paroikia means “temporary residence in a foreign land” and comes from the Greek word for “stranger”: paroikos .

Is it too late to send back to LIC?

I don’t understand this building at all. Of all the places to put a blank wall, you put it on the side facing the Manhattan skyline?! That’s the view everyone wants! (Trust me, I used to live very nearby, with that view, and cherished it every day!)

Don’t tell me they had no choice. They could have just set back from the property line a few feet on that side. Surely it would have been worth it to get so many apartments with spectacular panoramic views. I just don’t get it.

Not only that, but look at the placement of the rooftop pool and deck – on the other side from Manhattan? I understand the roof facility has windows facing that way, but you could have still seen the skyline from inside from across the roof deck. Are they anticipating a pencil tower on the two little lots they couldn’t acquire? Ha
