As blogged by Vanishing New York and picked up by Curbed, the Pencil Lofts site at 122 West Street in Greenpoint has hit a wall; VNY noticed that the DOB permits had been removed from their plexiglass protection and in their place was scrawled a note saying "Job Shut Down 5/5/09." (To be fair, DOB records show no action on that date.) This leads the blog to ask, "But can luxurification really happen in the shadow of burnt-out warehouses, in the deep hole of the New Depression?"
