It’s a good week for crumbling historic buildings, or at least a good week in terms of media spotlighting some old gems that are going to seed. AMNY has a list today of 10 historic buildings in the five boroughs that seem to be dying of neglect. Brooklyn’s two entries are the Empire Stores (“Workers are stabilizing the vacant Civil War-era warehouses’ arched windows and repairing a large crack on the building’s northwest corner. There are currently no plans for the state-owned buildings”) on Dumbo’s Water Street and 100 Clark Street (“Fearing the apartment complex, in the Brooklyn Heights historic district, could collapse, the city in May evacuated tenants and removed the top two floors from the five-story building. The owner has submitted a plan to the Landmarks Preservation Commission to stabilize the 1850s building.”). What other Brooklyn buildings should be on the list?
