Admiral's Row to be demolished

The Civil War era Admiral's Row officers quarters, which have been allowed to decay and fall into ruin, will soon be demolished. A supermarket and parking lot will take their place. This depressed area needs a supermarket, but the City's inability to see the history and beauty in Admiral's Row is yet another sorry loss. Thanks Bloomie. Take a long last look...

Hi - I just rode by these houses yesterday. In all my years in Brooklyn - many of them in Fort Greene yet - I never noticed these neglected mansions down at the bottom of the hill. What a loss.

What a shame! Wonderful photos. Too bad the city can't incorporate this building into the store somehow. Isn't there a need for offices?

Wow! As an Australian, these are the sort of things people like to see in your country, particularly restored. With a ho-hum factor of 100%,supermarkets and parking lots can be seen anywhere in the world. Such wonderful photographic opportunities these historical buildings have provided. Certainly don't feel inclined to take my camera to an American mart or parking lot!

Very sad to learn about this. Thank you for the beautiful images of them. And the trees...what is to happen to the trees? (I think I know.)

It's sad that they don't see the value in these monuments. I wish human beings weren't so damn stupid.

What a pitty! America should cherish it's history. When it's gone, it's gone...

In this situation it is hard to choose what gets to stay. An old falling apart building or a much needed supermarket.

How wonderful that you have preserved just a bit of this history through your blog. I am sure that by now the supermarket has been built and how sad that it trumped the historical significance and beauty of Admiral's Row.

I have enjoyed reading back through each of these posts.

Comme dans tous les pays du monde le profit prime avant la sagesse .Un super marché , sans doute sera t-il très utile mais espérons qu'il y aura quelque part sur cet édifice un rappel sur l'origine de l'ancien bâtiment.
Bonne journée.
