I know this is just beyond the borders of Bed-Stuy (it’s just a few blocks into Clinton Hill), but I just had to take a photo of the building addition on Myrtle between Ryerson and Grand. It’s a real sight to see. It looks like a new building is sneaking up behind an old building in the hopes of scaring it. You almost expect the new building to shout “Boo! I gotcha!” I must say that I, for one, am certainly shaken.
WNYC recently came up with a list of the 10 ugliest buildings in New York City. Our very own Woodhull Hospital made the list (and rightly so), but WNYC lists the hospital as being located in Bushwick. OK by me! Bushwick can have it! Hopefully WNYC will consider making a list of the 10 ugliest building additions.
