After 4 Years, Work Finally Begins On Raccuglia's Façade

Over the last few years, many in Carroll Gardens have wondered what was up with the sidewalk shed around Raccuglia's Funeral Home at the corner of Court and Sackett Streets. The scaffolding was first erected in 2007, the permit was renewed several times, but there never was any work done on the building's façade.  Until now, that is.
Just in the last week, a crew has added to the scaffolding's height and has begun to chip away at the old, unsightly 1960's style stone face, revealing the building's original brick. 
It's nice to see any type of progress after all this time.   Perhaps, soon, that scaffolding will finally come down.
