Underground Railroad museum in jeopardy
Plans to build a state-of-the-art museum inside a Brooklyn rowhouse believed to be part of the Underground Railroad are in jeopardy, the Daily News has learned.
A multimillion-dollar offer by developer V3 Hotels to buy the Duffield St. rowhouse and build a museum and educational center at the site could be scaled back because of delays and a worsening economy, company officials said.
The 2,000-square-foot museum would have been tied to a hotel planned for the site, one of four expected to be built along Duffield St. over the next several years.
