292 15th Street: Beds, Ritual Baths, and Beyond.
Pile driving/underpinning/shoring/ foundation work has begun on the Mikvah ritual bath being built at 292 15th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues. The lot is being developed by the Rabbinical Community of Brownstone Brooklyn. According to The Brooklyn Record, there was some question as to whether the "apartments" were to be allowed under NYC R6B zoning rules and regulations. It looks as if the DoB's questions have been answered and work has been allowed to continue.
