Activity at 186 Remsen Street

One of our eagle-eyed readers spotted some activity at the 186 Remsen building. To wit: “There are no longer any ‘for lease’ signs in the windows, which are all covered over with paper. There is also a dumpster in front of the building.”

I went over there today and found a worker knee-deep in the dumpster. “Has the building been bought?” I asked. “Not yet, but talk to the owners, 44 Court ” he told me. A call to 44 Court (aka Joseph P Day Realty) has yet to be returned, but as luck would have it, I then ran into the BHA’s Judy Stanton, who told me she thought they were trying to get the interior into shape before making the building available. According to Joseph P Day’s website, the building is indeed still on the market. 186 Remsen is part of the Borough Hall Skyscraper District.

    always thought this building was worth saving…hopefully something will be done before it’s beyond repair

    I guess I have eagle eyes, now. Spotted the changes while shopping at Perelandra, across the street.

    This building could house a very nice library

    We already have a very nice library. It just needs new air-conditioning, some security people, and a good cleaning crew. Simple fix.
