A Crown Heights condo building finally got some tenants last week when the arts group Super/Prime turned it into a gallery.

“It’s mutually beneficial,” said Super/Prime co-founder Harry Gassel. “We showcase young artists here and the broker gets free publicity.”

And it’s interactive. Guests made Roland Tiangco’s piece (pictured) by tearing out images from books.

“717 Prospect Place” (717 Prospect Pl. between Nostrand and Rogers Avenues) is open on Saturdays, noon–6 pm, through Sept. 26.

Reasonable discourse

Schank Von Graf Hoffmann from Val Caron says:
Love the whole Brooklyn Theme and i realize that this is a 100% Brooklyn site and this attractive informative well written daily scroll if you will seems to me to have the salt and sand to become the Brooklyn Enigma !
About the Crown Heights abandoned condo modern art rescue idea and action that despite the latest of morning hours i wished to add a late late comment .
I am nauseated when i have to witness another relic from our past being ripped down to appease the inevitable far off agonizing evil that all gets to be less than zero and a money printing machine in an unwanted unknown to any 50 Virgin cell way so the print makes the idea flow into more spending ?
Despite the delirium i am sickened to watch these 100 year old relics becoming pounded into concrete dust not ploughshares yet what do i know and do not answer that PLEASE ?
Yet the strict observances to our past as colonialists,Rebels ,Loyalists and Proud Americans and Patriotic Statesmen who saw to the construction of these Americana styles and New England rows and it was as done as it could not ever be again due to craftsmanships uncopied in its unmatched styles only to years of tain and shine snow and sleet did these truly make you wonder sleep .,>?(&&^% ccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc
