Workers eliminated any remaining trace of BearStearns’s Brooklyn back office on Tuesday night, removing the disgraced company’s logo from One Metrotech Center and installing shiny new JPMorgan lettering. Two men with Bear Stearns ID badges watched the transition and shook their heads. “It is sad,” one said. “It’s a real shame.”

JPMorgan is the investment branch of the JPMorganChase, which acquired BearStearns in March when the investment firm went belly up.

What JPMorganChase will do with its newly acquired property is still unknown, a spokesman said. The bank has two other properties within the 16-acre business office complex, which stretches from Jay Street to Flatbush Avenue between Willoughby Street and Myrtle Avenue.

Reasonable discourse

al pankin from downtown says:
getting tennants with workers back in the bulding should be the top priority of the elected officials. take a look at the siac building, virtually empty,who knows the fate of the national grid building (keyspan), in the chase buildings you could roll a bowling ball there an not hit anyone. thousands of workers are gone. the space is fully rented but they are "ghost" buildings.
