In Carroll Gardens it seemed like every other house had a
giant construction dumpster out front.
Gut renos on their way to dream houses. In Clinton Hill, or this particular
far Northeast corner that's as much industrial as residential, it seems that every surrounding building has
a groups of men hauling garbage and debris off of roofs.
View across the street from living room.
View from the bedroom in the back of the apartment.
For what purpose (and how there can be so much refuse that
hauling it is an eight-hour, five-man job day after day?) I'm not sure, though
I'm having a bad feeling about the empty lot next door that was nothing but
weeds and an abandoned wheelchair that has now been bulldozed and leveled
within a week. I'm afraid it's a mini condo boom is in progress (despite the
project across the street to the right that's been stalled off and on since
2005) and one with view-and-privacy-destroying potential just feet away.
Currently, the terrace view that would be at least partially blocked if the empty lot turns into a building higher than six stories.
