Why your neighborhood is full of Queens Crap
"The difference between dishonest and honest graft: for dishonest graft one worked solely for one's own interests, while for honest graft one pursued the interests of one's party, one's state, and one's personal interests all together." - George Washington Plunkitt

Of course it is a drawing. There is no graffiti.
That building is made for lame giant predatory developer financed graffiti murals. Will there be a sliver "affordable" apartments available for the inevitable 100,000 applicants?
How long before a "beautiful community mural" will take up residence on the two windowless walls?
Despite all the crap being built and the growing rents i still don't understand why people still wanna live there.
Why those big ugly blank walls? A mural would be an improvement, assuming they're willing to pay for someone with talent.
The community got bushwacked with this architectural marvel.
I like how the artists rendering omits the Broadway El.
"i still don't understand why people still wanna live there"
Beside the JMZ 12 or so minutes to Manhattan from Broadway& Myrtle
All the Medicaid services and other free stuff, look up how NYC mayor Boss Tweed got power and votes. Almost every dentist has a sign in the window 'we take Medicaid" and you wont find that anywhere east of the Cross Island parkway.
Add all the bars and hipster shit going on because Bushwick has become an annex for NYU and the East Village art & music scene, micro brewery's etc.
When the World Trade center was destroyed rents for needed office space went through the roof in lower Manhattan they all moved across the river.
Thats some primary reasons anyway.
I remember Rudy G said the original World Trade center held more office space then the city of St.Louis. Every available Square foot of run down crap below 14th was suddenly worth 10X 20X more as office space. Near every non millionaire schmuck and college student not on rent control or a long lease had to move across the river including many Chelsea sound stages.
