It’d been awhile since I ventured into the 130 year old structure on the shores of the fetid Gowanus. Inside, it was obvious that the hole in the roof had gotten much bigger. Water leaked through the structure, rotting the ancient beams from the top down. Where before there were bare brick walls, new pieces had gone up with tremendous color. It’s sad to see the old beast being reclaimed by the elements, but perhaps an investor will come along and save the place from being consumed by neglect.
