Thompson streetscape with new tower rising above
This block of Thompson Street presents a wonderful array of colorful tenements which form a consistent streetscape unified by scale and materials. However, the recent addition of the tower at 60 Thompson Street shatters that scale, and illustrates the danger this neighborhood faces without historic district protections. Note 68-74 Thompson Street, left of picture (detail map item #19).
