Retro Rendering: Do You Recognize This Soon-to-Be-Demolished Brooklyn Building?

Rendering via Brooklyn Historical Society


    Here’s a big hint — it’s on the corner of Atlantic Avenue and Hicks Street.

    If you guessed the Long Island College Hospital’s Fuller Pavilion, you’re correct.

    But we won’t fault you for being puzzled by the view. This rendering was completed before an eight-story parking garage was built across the street from the Pavilion — at roughly the viewpoint of the rendering.

    Today, the building is covered with scaffolding, and demolition equipment is waiting in the wings. The Fuller Pavilion is the first structure to come down in anticipation of Fortis Property Group’s controversial redevelopment of the former LICH medical complex in Cobble Hill.
