  1. Is the ultimate goal to turn the Greenpoint waterfront into that of the LIC waterfront? I’m not asking because of this small seven story building. I’m asking more generally.

    • Yes, Greenpoint is the last costal/waterfront frontier. Sandwiched inbetween Williamsburg and LIC it is ripe for development, with lots of industrial and/or single story/two story buildings ready to be torn down and replaced by taller buildings and towers. With App based car service, ferry service, citibike, and views of the Manhattan skyline people are no longer dependent on the phantom 4-car “G” Subway line. It’s already on it’s way to being a more crowded and dense neighborhood. It’s sad because it’s losing it’s small, tight knit community feel, like many other neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Queens.

    This site once hosted a portion of the old Greenpoint movie theater and a small building hosting a deli. It was then replaced by first an A&P supermarket and then the gym that the new development will probably replace. I know the site well since my grandmother once lived down the block at 150 Calyer. And so life goes on.
