Sokol Brothers Building on Columbia Street Leveled


    After the news last October that Michael Sokol had closed the business sold the building at 255 Columbia Street that had housed his family’s furniture business for over six decades to a Manhattan-based developer for $3.3 million, it was only a matter of time until the building was torn down. (Actually, it was three buildings–three brownstones that had been combined–between President and Carroll Streets, according to Lost City.) “It’s just time to go,” Sokol told the Brooklyn Paper at the time. Go he did, and now the building is gone too. A tipster emailed in this photo this morning of the demolished site. GMAP
