Witnesses Signs Gone


The many Watchtower signs and assorted painted messages on the Jehovah’s Witnesses buildings in Dumbo are gone — apparently removed sometime last week. Blogger Sam Greenfield of SamIAm noted it Sunday, and DumboNYC followed up with more photos yesterday. In July, Kushner Companies, RFR Holdings and LIVWRK announced they planned to buy the group of six properties, all buff colored with green painted windows, for $375,000,000. The deal is expected to close next month. To see the old signs, check out this photo on Flickr and this photo. Meanwhile, speaking of Dumbo, The New York Times real estate section yesterday wrote about living in the neighborhood, with many photos showing the beauty of its water-and-bridge-crisscrossed “postindustrial landscape.”
