    The Jehovah's Witnesses put 69 Adams St. in DUMBO up for sale

    By Lore Croghan
    Brooklyn Daily Eagle

    Tennis, anyone?

    The Jehovah's Witnesses have just put onto the sale market a development site in the heart of DUMBO, 69 Adams St.

    The building that now occupies the site has a four-story recreational facility and an 84-space parking garage.

    Its rooftop is graced with an open-air tennis court — which is topped by a fence so cars and pedestrians down below don't accidentally get pelted with over-exuberantly hit balls.

    The Watchtower recently posted the sale offering online without alerting reporters.

    According to the posting, 69 Adams St. is “a 157,410-square-foot development opportunity adjacent to the iconic Manhattan Bridge.”

    The Jehovah's Witnesses did not offer any comment about their sale offering to the Brooklyn Eagle when asked about it. They did give the Eagle permission to publish their images of 69 Adams St.

    Why do they own a house with a tennis court on top?!

    I apologize.........I misunderstood the OP............. When you said something about 'DUMBO UP FOR SALE', I thought that Mark Sanderson was being auctioned off for 'Watchtower Charity' or some such thing. Sorry.

    Yes, that IS a rooftop tennis court. Yet they beg for money?

    Wifi: Well, that's a surprise! Do you know if they build it or bought a building with a tennis court on top?

    Ahh, the sincere sacrifices these Brooklyn Brothers make for you lowly publishers in outer Buttsville!

    Which brave-hearted Bethelite was entrusted with the task to sit in Satan’s public park all day until the sun set over Jersey, waiting for Miss Spanx to come jogging along for that perfect publicity shot?

    We may never know.

    Just send us more money.

    bohm, it was originally built as a small industrial-manufacturing plant.

    Watchtower converted it to a recreational center with an 84-space parking garage on the lower levels.

    Side note: The only structure they gave up building from the blueprints at Warwick HQ was the recreational facility.
