Urban Green's Curious Smoke Shack in Williamsburg
Among the many things we're thankful for on this tradition American day of Thanksgiving, is that we don't live next to any developments under construction or any buildings that are about to come down. One of the projects that we're especially thankful we don't live next to is Urban Green in Williamsburg. We would not, for instance, want to live in one of the homes that has been subjected to the noise from this running motor, 24-7, for weeks and to the clouds of exhaust fumes wafting from the Third World-looking shack on the site. (Not to mention undermined by excavation early on.) Urban Green wishes to match "urban sophistication with suburban greenery" and there will be an "organic mixed media feature wall" and a "serene bamboo garden." In the meantime, absorb the zen vrooming of the motor and breath deep, feeling the chi, as the exhaust cloud wafts serenely skyward.
