1000 Manhattan Avenue, Revisited

Last night I noticed the crutch at 1000 Manhattan Avenue received a few accessories. Amused, I took a photo of it and forwarded to my buddy over at the Gowanus Lounge. Well, I just got home from running errands and guess what? It’s even more amusing in day light.

Note the half-assed application of neon yellow spray paint.

Whoa, I almost walked right into this! Good thing they nailed a street cone to it and covered it with spray paint so I would notice. Whew, that was close!

The only word I can muster to describe the above “set up”, and it is inadequate in its ability to describe the utter idiocy to be found at 1000 Manhattan Avenue, is RETARDED.

  2. I’m not sure about this, but I thought that construction sites are supposed to allow 5 feet of sidewalk space under those shelter things. I’ll see if I can check up on this, but I am not sure where. If anyone out there is better informed, please post it here.

  4. That’s the pisser, James. If they remove this thing the fucking front of the building will come off. I am not kidding.

  6. I haven’t seen the place and don’t really want to get up and personal. But if the work they are doing there has created the danger, then that should be some sort of violation, which will eventually be ignored by the DOB or whatever is in charge of sucking up to the contractors. Why not just be a pain in the ass and complain to 311, or 911 if the danger is immediate. The call is free and you never know when you will find a city agency that actually cares. But don’t bet on it, after all, Mike & Marky are watching and they are shooting you the rod.

Tell me what you're thinking...
