Shower visible from street is talk of Brooklyn

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

An under-construction townhouse in Brooklyn that has a glass shower that is visible from the street has the neighborhood abuzz.

The townhouse is in the Cobble Hill section of Brooklyn.

For now when you look closely on the second floor you can see the shower on the front of the building. That exposure left some neighbors wondering just what the homeowners had in mind.

But any concerns that the residents planned to shower in the nude for all to see appear to be untrue.

Townhouse

owner James Cavoli sent a statement to Fox 5 saying: "I have no comment other than to say that we are mildly fascinated that our neighbors have taken an interest in a bathroom that has never been used and is still under construction, and can only hope they will be as friendly when installation of the glass privacy coverings are complete."

Cavoli sent renderings of the finished unit that do show the bathroom windows obscured.

Cavoli even posted a letter to his neighbors in a window of his house saying he "regrets" that the design may have alarmed anyone.

"We are dismayed and a bit heart sick at the attention our half-finished home created," the note reads in part. It goes on to say that the family expects to live on the block with their children for years to come.

Cavoli wrote: "We look forward to a day when we know our neighbor well enough to discuss any concerns over coffee, and not in the newspapers and on gossip sites on the Internet."

    Wineries flourish in Brooklyn

    Hundreds of oak barrels of wine are all stacked in one room. You might think this is Napa, California. But it's not. It's the Brooklyn Winery, located in what was once an old pickle factory in Williamsburg. Refrigerated grapes are brought in from the North Fork of Long Island and from the Finger Lakes and then aged in barrels. These days urban wineries are becoming more popular, and they're popping up all over the borough.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled a sweeping report Thursday that examined New York City's recovery progress from Superstorm Sandy and promised to reform a much-maligned program that was supposed to rebuild wrecked homes. Speaking to about 50 homeowners, officials and community leaders in a storm-battered Staten Island neighborhood, the mayor said the city is aiming to start rebuilding an ambitious 500 homes through its federally funded Build-It-Back program.
