Sorry to stray off topic, but since we’re talking about the Dyer Ave area being a mess, I would like to rant about these buildings shown here on Google Streetview … For at least the last 10 years these buildings have been pigeon infested eyesores. If you take the bus out of the PABT you’ll have seen thousands of pigeons flying between these 2 buildings. The apartment is obviously occupied (I can’t imagine people are paying market rent to have those pigeons constantly on their window ledges and balconies, so I’m guessing it’s some type of subsidized housing). The hideous blue building has to be vacant. I can only imagine how many feet of pigeon shit are piled inside. Maybe it’s not desirable to leave that close to the busiest bus ramps in the entire world, but I really hate those buildings.
Update: Apparently that blue building was recently owned by Hunter College. It is now owned by Pigeon College.
