Seling off more of the family silver are we i wonder what they will do when all the family silver has gone
Is someone keeping a running tally of the building sales in Brooklyn? It will be nice to know what the total haul will be.
So here once again is my issue with the sale of all of these properties and how they are being marketed. The WT purchased these properties at a time when Brooklyn was on the ropes financially and a less than desirous location. They removed the properties from the tax rolls and gave zero back to the community. Now they are marketing them to the ultra rich and thereby contributing to the gentrification of Brooklyn, once again showing that they could care less about the mess they leave behind.
On top of all of this they market these properties in a fashion that panders to all of the things they are supposed to stand against namely materialism and a society that values hedonism over spirituality.
The textbook definition of hypocrisy. Just evil and vomit inducing.
BTW I once sat in one of the towers and flipped Bud bottle caps onto the street below as a drunken Bethelite. Then later puked up beer and pizza in my friends room at the 107 building. Ahhh good times.
I was a housekeeper on the 2nd floor of the towers in 1975. WT was renovating the Towers and there were "worldly" people still living in it. And now they are selling it. Poor organization, they don't know who they are or what they are selling anymore about the future.
Wowzers! That is some commercial!
Those Brooklyn kids must be having the time of their lives play acting in these vids.
In the third picture in the gallery, the guy has tight pants on.
Howd that get past the pants police?
