Thar she blows, folks. Yes, that's the massive Red Hook Ikea you see peeking through the foliage. We snapped this photo of the Swedish furniture emporium on our way into the neighborhood this morning and as you can kind of see here, the exterior is close to completion. They have yet to pave the enormous lot that will serve as parking space for up to 1,400 cars, and there's no particleboard furniture to be found on site—but it's coming, and fast.

In repose.

It's so...bright.

Hard at work making dreams come true.
