The fate of the Slave Theater at 1215 Fulton Street in Bed Stuy is still up in the air. An auction of the building that once housed the famed Afrocentric cultural institution was expected to take place today but has not been scheduled. It is not clear if an auction will be set for next month or at all. No word on whether building owner Rev. Samuel Boykin is in contract or sold the building, though in August several potential buyers were reported to be interested. The New Brooklyn Theater did not reach its goal of raising $200,000 through Kickstarter, but may still be able to raise some funds directly to try to buy the building, if it is still available. “Due to the hurricane, I have been told that the entire process may get pushed back because of availability from the Department of Buildings who is going to be helping with Sandy related issues,” said New Brooklyn Theater Executive Producer Sarah Wolff.

We stopped by 88 Richardson Street the other day, and lo and behold, the building is almost up to its full seven stories. This is the Karl Fischer-designed building with 188 units that is rising on the site of the former Meeker Flea Market next to the BQE in Williamsburg. The developer is Brooklyn-based Rabsky […]
This one-story garage at 564 St. Johns Place between Franklin and Classon in Crown Heights will be demolished soon and replaced by a Karl Fischer-designed eight-story apartment building. A demolition application was filed on Monday, but the DOB didn’t approve it because the filing lacked a plan exam. Developer Rabsky Group is behind the development, […]
A mixed-use development is in the works for part of a very large empty site on Myrtle Avenue across from the Marcy Houses in Bed Stuy, New York NIMBY reported. Architect Charles Mallea filed a new building application Monday for an eight-story, 46-unit building at 802-806 Myrtle Avenue. The street frontage will cover three of 15 contiguous empty […]
