Construction Site Du Jour: Manhattan Chocolate Site Improving
We used to enjoy the murals painted on the side of the Manhattan Chocolate Factory in Williamsburg, but not nearly as much as we've been enjoying the mess created since 568 Union Avenue was demolished. The site has even been violated by the Department of Buildings, but that has not impressed anyone enough to fix the thing in any way that can withstand a 5MPH breeze. It is currently self-demolishing on three sides. While we taking the photos an elderly neighborhood residents came up and cursed at "the bastards that made this mess on my street." A few minutes later, we watched someone drive up, park and start gathering big rocks from the dirt and put them in pails. We didn't ask.
