Our neighbor, Brooklyn Heights Blog notes that The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society is planning to build an 850 person residential and administrative complex in Rockland County, via the Journal News. The Journal News article mentions that “the society plans to move many of its administrative offices from Brooklyn, where it has overseen its worldwide operations for 100 years.”
The organization owns many of the buildings in and around Dumbo. We did not receive any replies after attempting to contact them via email on which building’s will be moved in Brooklyn. There are approximately 33 buildings located in Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo that make up the Watchtower Society’s complex. Many of the buildings are located on Adams, York, and Prospect Streets. 69 Adams is the ‘tennis court‘ building, and then there are the parking lots on 85 Jay Street and the lot behind 70 Washington Street at York and Front Street. Does anyone from the society know any details?
