We received a tip about the opening of a new outdoor architectural salvage business a few days ago but haven't had time to make it over to Gowanus, so we were pleased to see that blog Casa Cara wrote it up this morning. According to her post, Roy Baccaro, whose family has been in the business for a century, recently rented space in the Lowe's parking underneath the F train and is displaying a tempting array of antique iron fences, newel posts and fireplace covers, among other things. Anyone checked it out in person yet?
