End of an Era: Beard Street Loses Its Cobblestones
We've watched a lot of things come down along Beard Street in Red Hook over the last couple of years. Yesterday, work crews were tearing out the cobblestones so that it can be paved for Ikea. Curiously, the trucks loaded with removed paving stones were being driven into the Ikea site. Given that Ikea finished filling in the historic Graving Dock for parking months ago, it's unclear whether they're being used somewhere on the site or dumped into the water.
