This four-story, red-brick building on a lonely, atmospheric block of Warren Street near Hicks in Cobble Hill has always intrigued me. As long as I've known it, the windows and doors have been sealed up with cinder blocks. Word in the neighborhood is that is was once, of all things, a Christmas tree ornament factory. A closed Christmas tree ornament factory—now isn't that about the most romantic, melancholy notion you've ever come across? I can't find any confirmation of this rumor, but locals say that, until recently, you'd find glitter on the sidewalks surrounding the building.
Anyone know anything more about this place? It certainly looks like a ripe candidate for condoization.
