Park Slope Crest Improves Fouth Ave. Streetscape
The fencing around The Crest in Park Slope has come down. The mindboggling results are above. We will refrain from a long diatribe about how such architecture is the equivalent of saying "screw you" to the streetscape and how people that design residential buildings this way should be held up to professional ridicule for designing walls at street level. (Though we love the big vent effect.) We simply can't understand why anyone would make the entire first floor of a condo being pitched to a high end market into a wall. Ironically, it is across the street from this gem at the Con Ed building, which we called "The Great Wall of Gowanus." It looks like Brooklyn's "Park Avenue" is off to a shaky start architecturally speaking.
