Soul-Deadeningly Ugly on Havemeyer


165 Havemeyer Street

A lot of ugly buildings have been built during the past few years, and Williamsburg certainly has more than its share. But few buildings transcend ugliness in the way that 165 Havemeyer Street does. This soul-sucking beauty comes to us from the atelier of Philip Toscano Architects*.

For the record, the building will have 9 apartments and stores on the ground floor. The DOB permit doesn’t specifically say that there is a hellmouth below the cellar, but I have my suspicions.

*2009, and still no website.

  1. You described it perfectly. I have a shop across the street from that building and it is the most depressing thing to look at every day.
