Get Benjamin Braddock on the phone: the lead story in today’s hook-up is all about plastics.
The former NuHart Plastics site has been snapped up by a developer. In a 55 million dollar deal, All Year Management has purchased the 335,000 sqft lot that includes 22-36 Clay St., 280 Franklin St. and 49-93 Dupont St. The site, home to an ill-begotten halloween rave in 2015, is so contaminated that it’s considered a superfund site, but All Year Management still plans to build a residential complex with at least two buildings.
Speaking of contamination, Buzzfeed News took a deep dive into the history of waste management in New York City, featuring our very own Newtown Creek Digester Eggs.
Similarly, the New York Times looks at the “Rust Belt of New York City,” photographing New York’s post-industrial enclaves.
