Building Obits


The Municipal Art Society sent us this postcard “to inform … of the untimely passing of the Greenpoint Terminal Market, the Long Island City Power House and the former Con Edison Power Station …. They are survived by the endangered Domino Sugar Refinery, Sohmer Piano Factory and, in gravest danger, the Austin Nichols & Co. Warehouse.”

The M.A.S. wil hold a memorial on Tuesday, June 27, at 6:30 p.m. “to memorialize the lost and discuss the precarious fate of the remaining.” Let’s hope they sent an invite to City Councilmember David Yassky.
