Our coverage of the impending ground-breaking at Dock Street Dumbo has been verging on the granular and obsessive, but so be it. The latest news: The rear and roof of 56 Water Street (the building that used to house Jane’s Carousel) has been enveloped in some white material which we believe relates to asbestos abatement. Meanwhile, there was also some action at 29 Front Street yesterday–a red truck with a tube running into the former garage. Photo on the jump. Demolition permits expected within days. Let the games begin.
