Yeah, I was talking about the DOH site. That building is horrific. Should be a 70-floor tower.

If LIU buys the site, I hope we get a tower. They're already building a major mixed-use tower on the east end of their campus.

Demo is progressing. We just have to be patient. No worries, the golden era for Brooklyn will get its King. There's a reason its called King's County, now it just need the tower that defines it.

Although on a side note, the British name of Kings should of stuck as the official borough name. Brooklyn just sounds quaint, which its not. Its a urban jungle in every respect. A boss! But I digress...

Brooklyn is a town in Utrecht (Breukelen), sounds sophisticated to me, as Holland just does it better when it comes to urban living and is home to some of the most pretty towns in the world... but I digress. This tower is needed drastically for downtown. Brooklyn has a higgledy-piggeldy appearance with towers of all colors, shapes and sizes and needs something of quality urgently! The quality of design in Brooklyn is not quite there yet.

When do you predict construction to begin?
Oh hey, if Brooklyn is a boss, then Manhattan is what?

It's still Kings County. Queens is Queens county, Staten Island is Richmond county, Manhattan is New York county, and the Bronx is, the county of the Bronx.
