Slave Theater at 1215 Fulton Street
The son of the former caretaker of Bedford-Stuyvesant’s historic Slave Theater is blocking early steps the owner is taking to develop the Fulton Street site.
Omar Hardy said he has stopped workers from entering the building to carry out jobs such as collecting soil samples, reported the Brooklyn Eagle. Now, he said he would tear down a proposed fence. The owner, Fulton Halsey Development LLC, has sought permits for the fence to keep out intruders, according to a city filing cited by the news site. [more]
