What's That Thing on Top? Williamsburg Edition

Whats on Top N 1st Street

What you're looking at is 66 N. 1st Street, which is between Kent and Wythe, just across the street from the site of the former Old Dutch Mustard building and the future 80 Met. This was the scene as the Thing on Top, which is another product of Scarano Architects--whose principal, Robert Scarano, is clearly the King of the Thing on Top--starting with the building his firm occupies in Dumbo, whose Thing on Top puzzles passing motorists on the BQE and the Manhattan Bridge with its changing colors--was being worked on. Brownstoner had some information on the project back in November, when the building had been gutted. The final product will have 20 condos.

We nominate 66 N 1st for a special achievement award, for mounting its Thing on Top - inexplicably - at about a 10 degree offset from the original building below.
