325 20th Street: The Fall Update

































From the "digging one's own grave" contractor's file. The addition of three new DoB complaints for this troubled site in Greenwood Heights. Looks like a partial lift of the Stop Work Order is in effect in order to remove and replace unsafe undermined sidewalk out front.

Mixers lining up for the pour.

The 4 storied creme colored brick building is 321 20th St.

Adele Manor

Shell: 411 17th Street, vacant for as long as I can remember; decades by now?



















































































There was a time long ago, in another life it seems, when it was my job to clear long lists of H.P.D. violations from buildings not much better off than the Adele Manor. It's poetry of sorts... Building Maintenance Haiku.

Brooklyn: The Consequences of Development


Sixteenth Street: Developers Candyland. 
Some of these luxury condo buildings featured in this News 12 story from 2006 are now completed and are on the market. What can be described at best as lacklustre sales, has forced some developers to throw in the towel and go the rental route.  

Big shout out to all those community organisers who tirelessly defend their neighborhoods.

P.S. 10 actually ready to take particle physics research into a new frontier, unveils very, very, very, awesome partical collider.























What's being called the Mother of all Science Fair Projects, or "MoSFP", Elementary school students at Brooklyn's P.S. 10 Magnet School for Math, Science, and Design Technology have built their own Large Hadron Collider over this past summer's vacation, and plan on throwing the switch sometime next week.























Their Partical Collider

Designed to recreate the conditions just after the Big Bang, the Large Hadron Collider, 27 kilometers (16.7 miles) long, is housed in a pipe-like structure 100 meters below the school's playground. As part of their first experiment, two beams of subatomic particles, called 'hadrons,' will travel in opposite directions inside the circular accelerator, gaining energy with every lap. Students from Ms. Karen's PreK class will then let them collide head-on into each other and measure the results with the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS).

These exclusive IMBY photos (below) were taken this week as custodians made last minute modifications to the LHC.























Spiral Syncrotron
Reaching ultimate design performance.

With cooler, dryer, "wool sweater weather" approaching, super charged electrostatic fields are expected to be generated by the students themselves.

Below Ground Tour






























The Magnet Core
Winding the solenoid coil of the CMS took the entire school body over three months to complete. When it is fully operational, it will generate a magnetic field 100,000 times stronger than the one produced by the Earth itself.



















Detail: Time-consuming design and fabrication of the prototype superconducting quadrupole.














































The Compact Muon Solenoid

Weighing over 12,500 tons, the CMS is one of two large general purpose detectors built on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). During the experiments, students will use it to investigate a wide range of physics, including the search for the elusive Higgs boson, the possibility of extra dimensions, and even the very particles that might make up dark matter. (The "mock" in the mock chicken leg, so to speak.)

"Today we are almost there. When the current is turned on this week, and the beams circulate through the vacuum tubes with magnets colder than outer space, intensely enough to smash into one another, and the gargantuan detectors speed signals to our waiting iMac laptop computers, that will be the moment we’ve waited all summer for."
-Angela, Senior operations engineer age 6 1/2

292 15th Street Mikvah


Future Site: Undeveloped vacant lot along 15th Street in south Park Slope awaits Jewish ritual bathing pool.






Above: The site in context with neighboring buildings.

MEI MENACHEM MIKVAH & SYNAGOGUE PARK SLOPE

New construction of a three-story, 3711 sq.ft. community facility for the Lubavitch community of Park Slope, Brooklyn. The building consists of three floors above ground, (that's 31' tall) and a full cellar space dedicated to ritual bathing for men and women. Seems the plans also indicate a subcellar as well.

The second level is dedicated to religious activities. The third level includes a caretaker’s apartment and a large Sukah terrace for outdoor rituals.

Niddah Please...

Even if you covered it in aluminum siding, this one's gonna stand out from the crowd. IMBY's hoping for a facade of natural stone, maybe weathered limestone... Even modernist Breton Brut with roughly imprinted concrete would be welcome. Please, no mirror polished granite or salmon colored CMU's. Do you think the curb cut will be used for parking out front? Would love to see a nice tree over some SUV with clergy plates. That section of 15th needs street trees badly. What are the chances of seeing some vertical gardening up along that staircase?

UPDATE: Well everyone out of the pool, DOB may pull the plug.
