Williamsburg Photos Du Jour: Halloween Greetings From 373 Graham Avenue

Or: He’s Baaacck!

Contrary to reports that the police vacated north Brooklyn’s perennial haunted house last Friday, Joe (as he is known) is back. As for how Joe feels about his latest visit from the local constabulary, well, methinks the following missive (as well as the fact he appears to have erected a barricade as seen above) might be an indication.

It is interesting to note that after I took the above photographs a young man exited the apartment on the second floor. He told a neighbor he can no longer abide having Joe as a neighbor (and one would presume: landlord). I found this interesting for a number of reasons. Foremost among them: there is no Certificate of Occupancy for this building.


To be continued (no doubt)…

  2. Buildings built prior to 1938 that have had no changes made to its occupancy nor egress since then do not have a CO number.

  4. So Joe can (as I saw today) basically build a wall of crap/barricade obstructing both ingress and egress from his store/home? That’s a fire code issue. This fellow is clearly mentally ill. He needs help. Stat.

Tell me what you're thinking...
