Greenpoint Photo Du Jour: 239 Banker Street, Revisited Once More
Curious to see the latest Stop Work Order issued to this property today I decided a trip to this, Greenpoint’s most (in)famous address, was in order. Not surprisingly, there was nary one to be found.
As you can imagine I found this quite fascinating. Thus, on a lark, I decided to see what gives on the Department of Buildings Information System.
It would appear that this property not only still has a standing Stop Work Order on it…
but they have wasted little time violating it!
To be continued, no doubt…
P.S.: Here’s a yet-to-be-investigated complaint yours truly found rather amusing.
Word of advice to “Zoey”: If/when advertising an illegal residential space in an Industrial Business Zone, it maybe advisable to refrain posting a photo of the building in question which clearly features a sign in the foreground that reads “Industrial Business Zone”.
