Friday Open Thread: Which Abandoned Building Would You Repurpose, And How?

 

Welcome to Friday Open Threads, wherein we’ll pass the mic to readers to speak up about topics of interest, distress, horror, etc. Have something you want discussed? Let us know.

greenpointhospital_7_12.jpgTheater company Third Rail Projects has been seeking funding to turn an empty portion of the Greenpoint Hospital into an immersive theater experience to open this fall. It’s not the first time a theater group has transformed an abandoned building into a theater set, and the mini trend has us thinking about the many uses for abandoned buildings. Which brings us to our Friday Open Thread question for the week: if you could turn any abandoned site in NYC into something else, which site would you choose, and how would you repurpose it? Do you disagree with the way an abandoned building has already been transformed? Tell us that, too! Take it away, commenters.
