Fingerlike on Kosciusko Street in Bed-Stuy

31 Kosciusko Crop

This is 31 Kosciusko Street in Bed-Stuy between Bedford and Nostrand. Miss Heather emailed it over after having a look at new construction in the neighborhood because it struck as being somewhat Fingerlike. We agree that it has the essential qualities that make a Finger Building, although the height of the building it adjoins doesn't make a fully erect finger, just a semi-erect one. Interestingly, the original five-story design came from Henry Radusky of Bricolage Designs, who is called "Too Tall" by some. So, it came back as the 12-story building that's pictured here. Our friends at Brownstoner also took a look at it back in January.
