Cool sign on former First German Sport Club is gone
The First German Sport Club of Brooklyn is next door to yesterday's renovation project. It's been on the market for a long time. You can read some of its history here. It closed when a mafia gambling ring operating out of it got busted.
Yesterday, I noticed that the lettering on the sign was gone, and a "coming soon" sign is now on top of it advertising World Financial Center. I'm hoping they're moving from Himrod Street, but I'm not holding my breath. Someone really should fix that siding!
