Culture on the Cheap
Hard Hat Hannah Struts Her Stuff
Ever since she learned about Ms. Lancaster’s resignation, Hard Hat Hannah has been on my case.
Hannah: I want to see some of these work sites. I’ve been through rehab. I’m OK.
Miss H: Are you sure you can take it?
Hannah: BRING IT ON!
So I took her to Orient Avenue.
First up, 59:
Hannah: This house gives me the creeps.
Miss H: I’ve got your back. Let’s go in!
I detect some vandalism on this fence.
She said. To wit I asked:
What does it say?
OOH A SECRET!
Hannah then proclaimed:
This property is no secret. Per the Department of Buildings it is to be bricked up and fenced off. What’s more, I find this…
shoddy fence most disturbing. Anyone and their dog can get in here!
Miss H: It would appear someone already has.
Miss H: Let’s head down the street to 11 Orient, it’s a total shit hole.
Wow, this fence wasn’t here the last time I walked by. I wonder what happened?
Hannah: They got hit with two Stop Work Orders, that’s what!
Miss H: You go, Hannah!
The inspector who filled out this form made two egregious errors:
- Naming Marie Russo as the owner and
- MGM Demo as the contractor
What else can I say? Miss Hannah may be small, but she’s one damned good sleuth! What’s more, only a raging village of idiots could secure a demolition permit 4/16/08 only to get slapped with a Stop Work Order six days later.
Way to go, Grasso!
