Flatbush Flatiron: It Comes by Night

We know that Flatbush can be pretty spooky at night, but this particular rendering of Ismael Leyva's 21-story "Flatbush Flatiron" building -- officially approved last Wednesday, according to Brownstoner -- reminds us why we want to be home by dark.

The new residential tower will rise at Tillary and Flatbush in Downtown Brooklyn.

Apparently the principals thought they had approval in August, but the DOB disapproved plans related to the buildings foundation/structural underpinning. Or was it that dungeon?

More details available at the Brooklyn Eagle.

Why stand in the way of progress? Brooklyn was here before you arrived, it will be after you are gone. It will always be changing. Do I like all teh buildings and hipsters that are moving in? No. Can I do anything about it? No.
