What 's That Thing on Top? Williamsburg Facadomy Update
This is 66 N. 1st Street in Williamsburg, which was a What's That Thing on Top honoree back in May. The building has evolved since then and its latest turn has left it looking like a facadomy victim. Not only does it have that rather odd thing on top, but it now sports a new side wall, which has left the front part of the building looking like it was stuck onto new construction, which isn't the case. The fake facadomy and thing on top is between Kent and Wythe, just across the street from the site of the former Old Dutch Mustard building and the future 80 Metropolitan. The redone 66 N. 1st comes from the shop of Scarano Architects.
