Here's the Roebling Oil Field Building

The image to the right is a rendering of the McCarren Park Mews building that is rising at N. 11th and Roebling in Williamsburg. You might better recognize the building by the name we gave it because of the oil oozing out of the ground into the construction site: The Roebling Oil Field. The building is designed by Karl Fischer, architect of nearby Karl Fischer Row and a several other buildings on Roebling, which we are thinking of renaming Karl Fischer Boulevard. This building would bring the total of Karl Fischer designed structures within a six or seven block stretch in the neighborhood to about ten. Best to like Fischer buildings in this part of Williamsburg, because there is very good chance that the new building you look up and see will be--surprise!!!--a Karl Fischer. In case you need a refresher, that's the Oil Field, below.
