Workers Smashing Bluestone Sidewalk on Hancock Street in Bed Stuy

173-hancock-street-stone-060514

A reader snapped this photo yesterday of workers smashing bluestone in front of 173 Hancock Street between Marcy and Nostrand, one of Bed Stuy’s Gold Coast blocks. It looks like the bluestone may be under a later layer of cement. This block is in the proposed Bedford Historic District, but is not yet landmarked, so bluestone is not protected.
