The Fun Has Begun at 200 Franklin Street!

Earlier today I announced the fugTABULOUS Karl Fischer slated for 200 Franklin Street has borne the chrysalis of creation: scaffolding and permits. This evening (at 6:50 p.m., to be precise) I got a taste of the hilarity to come.

Mister Heather: They’re going to try to park that earthmover in that garage.
Miss Heather: No way.


Here’s a nice snippet of these chaps trying to defy one of Newton’s Laws, e.g.; no two objects can occupy the same space at the same time. In this case it is the entrance to this garage and the top of an earthmover. Don’t worry, they didn’t fuck up the building. They scratched up the street instead.

Undeterred, they then tried to get it in this way.

When I walked by later (8:30 p.m.) they had clearly given up…

and now we have an earthmover obstructing Franklin Street!
