A salute to (lost) Pacific Street, from the L Magazine

From the L Magazine's The 50 Best Blocks in Brooklyn:
40. Best Block Currently Closed for Atlantic Yards Construction
Pacific Street between Fifth and Sixth Aves, Prospect Heights
It's been somewhat sparse for years, but the buildings dotting this AY-adjacent block are/were of an unusually high architectural pedigree, from the elegant brick Spalding Building at the corner of Sixth Avenue and the historical firehouse next door, to the ornate Atlantic Arts Building nearer to Fifth Avenue, all of which are coming down behind closed gates.
Um, emphasis on were. And it's not just currently closed, it's permanently closed.
