    I believe it’s Vanderbilt Avenue in Wallabout Bay?? I surveyed that neighborhood when I worked at the LPC so I’m almost positive. :) Also, I’m late to the party in following this site – such a great idea!

    Anybody know what’s up with the house on the corner of Vanderbuilt Ave and Park Ave? Seems to be abandoned.
