For those of you unaware, today is the last day you will EVER have the pleasure/displeasure of driving your car along Fifth Avenue from Flatbush to Atlantic. ....The road will be closed on 2/1/10. These folks are were among the last ones.
For history buffs: There was a guy, Daniel Goldstein, who tried to fight the Arena project, because -among other concerns- he would have to move because he lived in its planned footprint..
Needless to say, he lost his battle.
He is presently among the last residents living in the soon-to-be-demolished building. Is it right to assume this classic sign is in either his (or his partner's) handwriting?
Finally, heres a picture taken from the 6th Ave Bridge looking at the site of where arena will be built. (The 6th Ave bridge itself will be closed soon, but has a few more weeks of service left in it. I'll try be back to take its picture on its last day of service)
nothing like taking a few low quality photos on a Sunday afternoon... comments welcome.
