Those who complained that those big new buildings on 4th Avenue were breaking some cardinal rules of successful urban planning, including street level retail to make the urban fabric vibrant, take this: the Novo's got a first floor tenant; Gowanus Lounge snapped a photo of it on Friday (and reported it's the spot where cancer patients go for chemotherapy). Sure, the "Park Slope Ambulatory Infusion Center" might not be the ideal tenant for Novo-ites, but perhaps it's better than some of their sister 12-story buildings, with nothing but bricked up facades greeting the street.
