As my previously blogged bit of zen courtesy of 646 Manhattan Avenue would suggest, today was filled with many an interesting discovery! This was certainly the case when I walked by 120 South 4 Street and saw men at work. More specifically, they were installing windows. I found this interesting for a number of reasons. Foremost among them:

this property has a standing Stop Work Order on it. Not that the owners of this property seemed to be terribly troubled about this technicality, mind you. Why should they be? They have amassed a litany of unpaid ECB fines and no real, substantive action has been taken.

penalties120south4nys,

Anyone care to do the math?

UPDATE, March 3, 2013:

It would appear that the Department of Building’s Emergency Response Team paid this site a visit the next day!

BUSTED!

Naturally I had to bring this to my Community Board’s attention:

Email to Community Board 1

Update, March 4, 2013: Not only did I get a response from Community Board 1, but apparently they have received other complaints as well. They’re on it!

P.S.: Last October a man was found stabbed to death in this building. You can read about this gruesome and sad turn of events here. Be sure to take a moment to look through all the photos.

Four months later

In so doing, gentle readers, you’ll quickly ascertain that 120 South 4 Street has acquired quite a few new windows in the last four months.

P.S.#2: Here is something that might be illuminating regarding what constitutes a HAZMAT site.
