Little Italy still has some fight, it seems…
The new monument to luxury living at 224 Mulberry Street was apparently the victim of vandalism over the weekend. A reader tells us that late Saturday night, someone reportedly hurled a brick through the window leaving a rather “dramatic” hole. The shattered glass has not been covered or fixed as of this morning.
Our tipster aptly sums up the incident:
Whether the violence was motivated by a frustration with what the newly finished condos represent, or simply misdirected anger resulting from Taim’s continually shrinking soup containers, is impossible to tell.
It’s also important to reiterate that 224 Mulberry Street is technically overbuilt given current zoning restrictions. The 110-foot-tall property resides in the Special Little Italy District, which limits heights to 85 feet and with frontage mainly of masonry.
So, yeah, it got a special pass. Given the recent spate of bribery happening at the Department of Buildings (i.e. fast-tracking projects), this isn’t a complete shock.
