Park Slope Eyesore Getting Fixed Up


    The squat red building next to the American Legion outpost on 5th Avenue between 6th and 7th streets has been left to rot for a very long time, but Here’s Park Slope reports that the property is finally getting some TLC. According to the blog, the building is being gutted and its ground-floor space is being prepped for a retail tenant. The building was notable for being a throwback to a seedier era on 5th Avenue and for the messages written in chalk that adorned its doorway, such as “This is Not a Toilet.”
