Checking in on the BRT Demo

Contrary to Brownstoner, I’m not so sure that the slow pace of demolition at the former BRT power plant (500 Kent Avenue) is the result of environmental concerns. Remember that Con Ed’s assessment of the site found very little in the way of environmental issues (contrary to the story they were passing off to the community last year). Watching this from the water side, the issue might be how to dismantle the huge iron coal pockets. They have been taking that down in large sections and then doing the dismantling on the ground.
