  1. Does Brooklyn need another condo tower? I live in the bay, a mile of the tower put up next to the train station. Before it was put up, it was already difficult to navigate along Emmons Ave. and the parallel-lettered streets going all the way up to Avenue U. Now that this tower is complete and occupied it’s gone from difficult to a nightmare. I find it impossible to believe there are that many people with the kind of money it takes to reside in these towers begging to come to Brooklyn. Are there studies done on the impact on the neighborhood and its infastructure BEFORE these projects are begun or are profits put ahead of people? The answer is obvious!

  2. Yet another condo tower! I find it sad that I am no longer as surprised as I used to be at the construction of these towering buildings. How long will it be until Brooklyn is devoured by these buildings. WAKE UP Brooklyn!
