Regarding the old "baseball wall" in Gowanus that we received a photograph of yesterday, showing it in rough shape... there's no need to worry! A spokesman from Con Ed (the company that now owns the wall now) tells us:

The original portion of the wall—the part that dates to when the Dodgers played in Washington Park—is staying up. That is what we have always intended. Our architects have been in touch with baseball and neighborhood historians on this matter. We have met with them at the location to make sure that nothing that is original to the old Washington Park is torn down.

Meaning the photo we were sent is not of the original portion of the wall. Indeed, there has long been confusion surrounding the wall; check out some old photos of it here.
