The fate of the Brooklyn Heights Cinema and the 1895 building it inhabits at 70 Henry Street is still up in the air following a Nov. 27 meeting of the Landmarks Commission. The subject was discussed but not enough commissioners were present to vote, said DNAinfo. The owner of the building has proposed adding five stories with 17 rental apartments, designed by Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel. Landmarks is debating whether the building ought to be left alone or whether the original design has already been too compromised to matter. The owner of the cinema has said he will reopen elsewhere in the area if necessary.
