369 Fifth Street

It appeared utility work was being done today outside of 369 Fifth Street. Luckily for the workers inside, it appears the building has all its windows installed.

It appears units in the back of the building will have small balconies; a nice feature assuming the lot on Newark Avenue is never developed.


213 Newark Avenue Gets Pilings

Crescent Court

Little progress appears to have been made at the site since last we checked in. This may simply be the result of buried pilings invisible from our point of view. In addition, it seems work crews were absent in observance of Martin Luther King Day, unlike other sites around the city.
