Roof Damage at Landmarked Jay St. Firehouse


A reader sent in this picture of major damage to the southern roof of 29 Jay Street, the landmarked Brooklyn Firequarters. Pratt Area Community Council received a grant to restore this building back in 2010, but for now it is still under city ownership. Here’s Damon Strub, the architect for the project, with an update on its pending renovation:

“The sloped roof is damaged and has been for several months now. The firehouse is still owned by HPD and they are doing their usual level of maintenance. The project is currently scheduled to move forward into construction this June – however, it has been scheduled to move forward quite a few times in the past – only to be cancelled and backed up at the last minute – so we are not holding our breath. It’s a shame that HPD cant get their act together on this building. It and its tenants deserve better.”
