Dumbo Development: Watchtower Jehovah's Witnesses

News broke this week that the Jehovah’s Witnesses are selling their property at 85 Jay Street, as well as 25-30 Columbia Heights and 124 Columbia Heights. That much undeveloped land in Dumbo is bound to command a huge price. Also in Dumbo news: more debate about schools, Google gives local techies startup tips, and a new challenger for a congressional seat steps into the ring.
