In our papers

This week in our Courier Life papers, some interesting developments in DUMBO.

The Brooklyn Heights Courier reports that St. Ann's Warehouse has only two more seasons at 37 Water Street before it ha to make way for the Dock Street project, in which a 17−story apartment and school complex will be built.

St. Ann’s Warehouse Founder and Artistic Director Susan Feldman is casting a net out for possible future locations, which may include moving the 30-year Brooklyn institution to Manhattan.

Also along the waterfront, the Brooklyn Bridge flea market has drawn hundreds of shoppers to the area, as well as complaints from nearby residents.

Says one resident who wished to remain anonymous:

I had a serious problem with it. I will give them a little benefit of the doubt, but at 7:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning I don’t like to be awakened like a carnival came to town. They blocked the whole of Water Street loading in like a bunch of carneys and at 6 p.m. It was the same thing when they loaded back up, and they blocked the street.
The flea market organizers had similar issues with their Fort Greene market, which were able to be resolved. So chances are the same steps will be done here.

Live in the neighborhood? Enjoy the flea? What are your thoughts on the matter?
