Back in June of 2014, YIMBY reported on new building applications filed by JDS Development for a tower coming to 340 Flatbush Avenue Ext., on the southeastern edge of Downtown Brooklyn. Now, we have the first rendering and actual details for the SHoP-designed tower, which will rise 1,000 feet tall, claiming the title of New York City’s tallest building outside of Manhattan, and giving Brooklyn its first legitimate supertall skyscraper.
Building applications called for a 775-foot tall structure spanning 555,734 square feet, and subsequent plans filed with the DOB were even shorter. But the actual design will majorly exceed expectations. (more…)
NEW YORK — If you’re one of those people who hates missing the end of breakfast hours at McDonald’s, hang on just a little longer: The chain says its breakfast menu will be available all day starting Oct. 6.
Last week, Tired Hands debuted Necto Cooler, a beer inspired by the most nostalgia-inducing beverage of all time. Originally released in the 80s as a tie-in with cartoon series The Real Ghostbusters, Hi-C’s Ecto Cooler was an orange-flavored, green-colored drink that is fondly remembered by 80s and 90s kids.
In order to achieve the retro-inspired flavor, Tired Hands used grilled nectarines to make the sour wheat beer, and they promoted the release with a painting of mascot Slimer on one of the brewery’s windows. Not surprisingly, the limited brew didn’t last long, completely selling out in a matter of days.
The Lolo Lid is a stealth beer koozie that allows you to drink beer while out in public as it will make it look like you’re just drinking coffee. It’s a special lid that holds on to a standard can of beer. You then have to attach it to a paper coffee cup to turn the whole thing into a beer-insulating Koozie that looks like a coffee cup. And if you want your own, you’ll have to pledge $20.
