Residents and Chicken Slaughterhouse Clash

When the building next door to the “luxury” condo you’re considering buying has a huge sign that says “Live Poultry Slaughter”, you might want to see if they are killing chickens next door or just being ironic before dropping $675k. Just saying.

And this is not a case of growing pains in a formerly industrial neighborhood. This is a case of a residential neighborhood that has always had a chicken-slaughtering plant (and other non-residential uses) mixed in.

(By the way – the “luxury” condo in question is 118 Greenpoint Avenue. I have it on pretty good authority that the huge foam crown molding at the top of the building is not LPC approved and will be going away.)
