What's That Thing on Top? Dumbo Edition

53 Bridge Street

A reader reminded us about 53 Bridge Street, pictured above, whose yellow growth has graced the Vinegar Hill/Dumbo skyline for some time. The building is owned and is being developed by Joshua Gutman, whose name you might recall from the Greenpoint Terminal Market conflagration. The architect is the Brooklyn King of the Thing on Top, Robert Scarano, although no final renderings present themselves. (Call it Tumortecture?) 53 Bridge has pretty much looked like this for about a year, and when we walked bye this weekend we found a relatievely new Stop Work Order taped to the door. So, for now, the Big Yellow Thing on Top will stay big and yellow. Joy!
