Bushwick 11237

Development. The Mundane. Rising Rents and New Sights.

Mobilization of Bushwick Against Gentrification Began. Will We Be Able to Stay?

No. Words. My favorite part is when the “artists” had their community meeting AT THE SAME FUCKING TIME AS THE COMMUNITY’S COMMUNITY BOARD MEETING

Today I was on the L and it was stopped at Bedford for 30 minutes because some guy got his wallet snatched and the police had to “investigate” (more on that later). I spent most of that time reading and wishing I’d taken the M to the J and just walked from Chambers.  I got to work at 10:00 AM only to learn that there were also long delays on the JMZ.  

I didn’t make the right decision but I certainly didn’t make the wrong one. Trains! I love them. 

Gorgeous.  Love.

Interesting that this newly updated terms of service has no bearing on neo-nazi and overtly white supremacist/nationalist blogs which continue to be left up. I like how there’s no definition of “overtly malicious”, and they “encourage” you to “dismantle negative speech through argument” instead of censorship. What? Who’s censoring what and who?


Logged into Tumblr today and had to agree to these HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS new terms

Demolitions for 1094 Madison St and 1255 Bushwick Ave

A demolition application has been filed for a single family house at 1094 Madison Street, between Central and Evergreen Aves.  The property was purchased in October by developer Boaz Gilad (via Madison Upreal LLC) for $370,000.

The parcel is located a few blocks from another Gilad project at 1255 Bushwick Avenue, where Brownstoner recently noted a new seven-story 32-unit residential building will replace the Holy Tabernacle Church.

SFH are a rarity in Bushwick and getting scarcer by the day. Sorry to see another frame structure go. 

Years and years. 

Years and years.
