Today is Finger Building Tuesday
Williamsburg's Finger Building, whose official address is 144 N. 8th Street, gets another turn before officialdom today. It is going before the Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA) for an extension of time to build a taller structure. The Community Board has voted against a taller building. The hearing takes place at 10AM at 40 Rector Street, which is between Washington Street and the West Side Highway, on the Sixth Floor. Members of the public can make three minute comments. The BSA can overrule decisions made by the Department of Buildings.
UPDATE: The BSA had been expected to give the go-ahead to the Finger Building, but opted to continue the discussion on November 20. A significant number of Williamsburg residents opposed to the building testified.
