Palmer's Dock, er, Northside Piers Takes Shape
In a fury of men and equipment, the first of Northside Williamsburg's waterfront (NOWA, anyone?) highrises is beginning to take shape.
After months of pile-driving, the first two of twenty-nine floors can be seen rising alongside the Austin Nichols warehouse (which, BTW, has seen suspiciously-little activity in the past few months, given its owners ambitious condo-ization plans).
Imnotsayin was away much of last month, and missed the moment when the gritty and accurate "Palmer's Dock" project was redesignated the much tonier and cautiously milk-toast "Northside Piers". Did anyone witness the renaming? Did focus groups find the word "dock" a bit fishy and barnacle-crusted for their $800-a-month-maintenance liking?
Palmer, we miss ya - and we hardly knew ya.
