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?



Yes way

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.

Hannah: Dammit!

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:

  1. Naming Marie Russo as the owner and
  2. MGM Demo as the contractor

I have seen this shit time and time again. The real author behind this disaster is none other than Marie Grasso and MMG Design!

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!

  2. You sure that abode is on Orient Avenue?

    Looks more like 1313 Mockingbird Lane to me.
