Available on Hope Street in Williamsburg

Available in Burg

There is something about this juxtaposition of images--the "available" sign and the art painted on the wall--of this building on Hope Street in Williamsburg just east of the BQE that makes the sale offering more compelling than the $9 million asking price. The 20,000 square foot lot could support a 54,000 square foot building. It's only steps from the massive condo activity down the block and on Union Avenue.

What is unappealing about the sign, however, is how it blatantly disrespect the artwork beneath it.

The sign should read "Help drive the final nails in the culture that once thrived in Williamsburg."

That is what I see this photo as representing.

YES - let's tout the criminals who ruin other people's property. graffiti is wicked cool.

#1 - it's discouraging to know that people who actually think like you exist.

#3, you're an ass. This is clearly not graffiti, it's a mural, made with permission. What, somebody snuck up and painted a detailed 500 square foot mural in the middle of the night?

i'm more discouraged that people like #3 exist. there is no evidence that the work was done illegally, you just assume it was because of the style.
