Karl Fischer Diamond Street Update

Karl Fischer on Diamond Street

Earlier this week, Brownstoner had an update on the progress of the Karl Fischer building at 305 McGuinness Boulevard near the Pulaski Bridge. Today, we bring you an update on the progress of his five-story building on Diamond Street, which is not beloved by our Greenpoint correspondent. She describes it as "a masterpiece," but not in a nice way. She writes of the building at 130 Diamond:
I have peeked through the fence. The first floor has faux brickwork on it not unlike an Italian Palazzo. This, of course, is the perfect addition to a block with 2-3 story row houses on it. A block, I would like to add, that is located in "Little Poland."
Is that green stone on the front?

I grew up on this block and this building is a monstrosity, it is by far the ugliest thing I have ever seen and has ruined any integrity of the block.
