250 Bowery Receives New Plywood Fence

Posted on: April 13th, 2011 at 6:09 am by

Oh, 250 Bowery!  You thought we’d forgotten about you.  Not the case, good ol’ friend.  In fact we noticed that people are finally starting to pay attention to your junkyard lot again.  Must be all that money you just fetched from the big daddy Vella Group.  $9,272,250 – hot damn!

In the next few years, maturity will take it’s course, leading to certain changes.  Don’t be afraid, though.  It’s normal.  Your genes determined that you’ll grow big and tall – eight stories, in fact – and house some residential and retail.  Before long, you will become just another Bowery regular.  For better or worse.

We noticed just yesterday that you decided to go for a bit of a makeover.  Indeed, there were a bunch of people at the front gate removing that rotten, splintering plywood from your sights.  But all they did was stack it with the rest of the onsite garbage, and construct a new fence that extends further into the sidewalk.  Happy trails!
