Little Left of Recently Intact Wood Frame on Smith Street in Boerum Hill

    A tipster sent us this this rendering posted to the construction fence and some shots of the construction inside at 159 Smith Street. This 19th century wood frame, the only wood frame on Smith Street, according to Pardon Me For Asking, was in perfectly intact original condition, although decrepit, before construction started. It is being altered to make way for a modern four story building.

    At this point, it looks like all that is left of the original building is the shared party walls and one floor of joists — no beam and nothing in the front or the back, as far as we can see. It’s located between Bergen and Wyckoff streets in Boerum Hill.
