Sleepy's Montague Street Addition 'Boring' Because of Crane -- Brooklyn Heights

 The three additional floors being built on top of Sleepy's at 116 Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights (Brownstoner has a rendering) are going to be "boring" because of the need for a crane -- a great, big crane, not the puny tinker toy seen in the photo above.

The architect told the Brooklyn Eagle in June that originally the added floors were going to be comprised of "jazzy" steel and concrete prefabricated modules. What is being constructed instead is a “more typical and boring” three-story addition because of the need to "bring a crane to Montague Street to install the modules coinciding with last year’s problems with cranes and crane operators citywide."

“What killed it was the insurance for the crane,” he said.  More at the Eagle.
