Berlin or Brooklyn?

Gowanus Lounge asks:

What is this building? Where is it? Is it in Eastern Berlin, say in the wilds of Prenzlauerberg? Or is it in our very own borough [Brooklyn], and if so where?

One place you will not find this.

In the conscience of the preservation community. MAS? Hunter?

Hilarious that a so called real estate blogger has no clue about that building. Just goes to show if it's not a trendy neighborhood, those guys really have no clue what they are talking about.

The building is a former nursing home, btw. It has been abandoned for years.

Isn't this building the one on West Street in Greenpoint across the street from the Greenpoint Terminal warehouses? There are movie and tv shoots in this area constantly due to the unique backdrops that this post industrial graveyard provides. Plenty of commercial activity also.

This is on Cropsey Ave in Bath Beach/White Sands ( or what's left of WS) , Bklyn. It is an old Jewish nursing home, which built it's new building right next to the old. It has been like this for several years. The land is likely still owned by the Home... for whatever reason/s it remains standing, abandoned and undeveloped...
