Happy Construction Safety Week From New York Shitty!

After taking a weekend off (even puppets need a break, folks!), Hannah is pumped for Construction Safety Week. I admonished her that such stuff is a hit and miss proposition here. In other words, prepare for the worst.

CASE IN POINT: 1000 Manhattan Avenue

After being hit with $20,000 in fines (all of which are unpaid*) the ostensible owner of this building, one Carol Caputo (et. al.) has seen fit to remedy her/their leaning tower of piss.

On a weekend, no less. This photograph was taken Saturday, April 26, 2008 at 1:00 p.m.

Good thing this chap did his high wire act before Construction Safety Week. He might have gotten busted!

  2. OK, I am stupid. When I check on the violations and fines for offenseses by critters like Marie Grasso, I see things listed like “Affidavit Accepted.”

    What the hell does that mean? Were they just given a wink and dismissed? Did someone get laid?

    Seriously, how many of these so-called “fines” are actually paid?

    This is a real question. If you have the answer, please let me know.

Tell me what you're thinking...
