This use to be the location of the Weinstein Brothers hardware store. We brought many a hardware supplies from them since 2003! The new building permit, approved on October 22, 2014, lists a six story building with 44 units. Construction started early January, 2015. We remember when the wired fenced was being installed because we were surprised how far the fence extended on the sidewalk.
The building is going to wrap around Halsey Street, covering the North/West corner of Tompkins Avenue and Halsey Street.
