Former Homeless Shelter to be Demolished at AY


    Two demolition permits were just filed with the DOB for 603 Dean (pictured) and 768 Pacific Streets, both addresses of the former homeless shelter on the Atlantic Yards site. The shelter was shut down in early 2010 despite protests from community members and political leaders who objected to its closure and seizure via eminent domain. Tracy Collins has a great shot of the building when it was open, as well as a photo of it from the Pacific Street side. The building neighbored Ward Bakery, which crews completed demolition work on this March. GMAP
