Hamberger Christmas Display Factory's Headstone Coming Along Nicely

I haven't revisited the topic of the old Hamberger Christmas Display Factory since the Visagoths of Development tore down the much-older-than-imagined Cobble Hill building in the summer of 2008.

Well, work on the new apartment complex has continued apace since then, never pausing for very long (unlike other South Brooklyn projects). The southern aspect is still a mass of cinder-block ugliness. But the Warren Street side is getting some personality. And, I must say, it's not absolutely terrible. The facade kind of fits in with the street. At least the windows have a little personality. They're not just holes in the wall.

However, I hope the people who move into this place realize that the address has been crossed off Santa's list.
