A Lid on 30 Henry Street, Brooklyn Heights

Photo by MK Metz
Before the snow hit this past weekend builders put a plywood roof on the deep pit dug at 30 Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights, the site of the past home of the Brooklyn Eagle newspaper.

The project will eventually be a 5-story condo. It's design was called "boring" and “a mishmash of contextualism" by the Brooklyn Heights Association.

The Brooklyn Eagle has moved to offices in DUMBO and at 16 Court Street in Downtown Brooklyn.

Why would any company in their right mind move offices to DUMBO with the high rent in the neighborhood.

The folks who wrote the comment listing app closed it down. We're looking into another one; not sure we want to go with Disqus.

OK, we're trying a new comment listing app. Seems to work pretty well so far. Let us know if you want to see more comments or less.

There are still some reasonable rents in DUMBO if you're flexible.

add to previous comment - that is, commercial, not housing. Housing is sky high.
