As a crane stands outside of 241 Carroll Street after an morning, at least one local Carroll Gardens neighbor is already taking steps to try to build up a nest egg for the displaced families who lived there.
Resident Kristina Frantz Alexandre has created a fund on FundRazr with a $5,000 goal for helping residents who have lost their home due to the collapsed brownstone. The money will be used to purchase Visa gift cards, she wrote to Patch.
On the site she writes:
As you know, the beautiful brownstone next to PS. 58 has collapsed and is being torn down. Howie and Sisi are cornerstones of this community so now it's out trun to help them. There were multiple families living in this house it would be great if the community could help get them back on their feet. Visa gift cards will be purchased for all of the families.
