Large Residential Building in Williamsburg Evicted!

475 Kent Ave was forcibly evacuated last night due to many code violations. The building houses a lot of artists and young people. Check out the Gowanus Lounge Post for more info, continuing updates, and accounts from residents of the building as they tried to stay in their apartments while police roamed the hallways yelling that they are being evicted. For those of you who don't live in NYC, last night was one of the coldest nights of the season. This is a pretty large building, reports say it has over 100 residents. It is a pretty impressive, eye-catching building, especially, as in the above picture, at night.
