Meet the Sunset Park sculptor who creates fantasy football trophies

Fantasy football team owners will soon be gathering together in bars and in friends’ living rooms all over Brooklyn to conduct drafts to select players for their teams for the 2015 season.

The Wythe Hotel. Brooklyn Bowl. Restaurants such as Rosarito Fish Shack and 12 Chairs Café. Heatonist, a shop devoted entirely to selling hot sauces.

Now we're adding a new place to our list of interesting things on this Williamsburg avenue: The building under construction on the corner of Wythe Avenue and Grand Street.
