The sidewalk reconstruction bedlam in front of 200 Hicks Street at Montague is rapidly easing, as progress moves forward at a nice clip. Over the weekend, a hole in front of the residential building was getting wider and deeper, but as of Thursday, fresh white cement curbs have been poured and reshaped at the corner, and are in place along Hicks. Mind you, for now, it still sounds like a never-ending barrage of machine gun fire, as excavation continues.
Unfortunately, one block over, the serenity of Remsen Street between Montague Terrace and Hicks just took a dive, as a mass of scaffolding prepares to cover the beauty of the three-story residence at 48 Remsen, on the south side of the street. (Pics below.) And let’s not forget the mess, uh, mass of scaffolding that wraps around the residential highrise at 1 Pierrepont (& Columbia Heights). What’s the deal this summer? Brooklyn Heights resembles a construction war zone… more than usual.
