There she blows... The Armory Plaza Parking Facility exposed.
The Armory Plaza @406 15th Street
The eagerly anticipated, long awaited, Bricolaged Designs/Henry Radusky/ Jack Locicero collaboration triumphantly pulls down its construction fence sans shame.
Looking east up 15th Street, directly across the street from the newly restored, historically landmarked, $16 million Park Slope Armory Sports Facility.
The three story brick building in the foreground is what's left of Rosa's Mexican Bakery.
Access three levels of subterranean parking through this roll down garage door.
Front Entrance. Twin stair cases leading down to the cellar level "ambulatory health care facility".
A window. A wire for surveillance camera.
Sidewalk with vaulted metal grating covering the moat. The two thornless honey locust street trees fared poorly during the installation of the 60' deep foundation pilings.
Subterranean Ambulatory Health Care =Methodist Hospital?
Couch-sized section of concrete pile cap remains exposed!?
