Hey, Dumbo! Welcome to March. This month is women’s history month, and this Monday, Dumbo added a brand new women’s co-working and networking space known as The Wing at 1 Main Street. The space is decorated with work by female artists, sells food from female-owned food vendors, and features a library stocked with titles by female authors.

Speaking of building, a 12-story condo has secured funding to rise at 70 Schermerhorn Street.

But, not every project in town is getting funding. While neighborhood advocates have long pushed for reconstruction on the Brooklyn Heights section of the BQE, Governor Cuomo left funding for the project out of his most recent budget proposal.  (more…)

That’s not the only time Pier Two was in the news recently. On Monday, Brooklyn Bridge Park put out a call for proposals for contracting at the site. A spokesperson for the park explained that the 3.4 acre addition to Brooklyn Bridge Park will feature a large lawn and water garden.  (more…)
