Top Floors of 53 Bridge Street Coming Down

53 Bridge Street

After 5+ years, the top addition of 53 Bridge Street is being taken down, according to a Brownstoner post today. The approved DOB application states, “FILING HEREWITH PARTIAL DEMOLITION OF 8 FLOOR AND ENTIRE FLOOR 9 THRU 13.” Several complaints about falling debris or hanging scaffolding have been submitted over the years. The building is owned by Mr. Guttman. We don’t know the fate of this building, but perhaps work can be done within zoning compliance.
