This morning yours truly awakened in a truly rotten mood. A regular “Cranky McCrankerton”, if you will. After some consideration (and three cups of coffee) I decided to go for a walk. A little voice in my head told me I was going to find some prodigal porn today. Sure enough, I did. Five hours worth no less. I’m one lucky gal…

I hope all is well. Opinions on the new Domino development?

I’ve made a serious effort lately to document as much as possible while it’s still there. I also made a stop motion video I think you’ll get a good laugh out of, if nothing else. Feel free to post if you enjoy it!

Done! As for the new Domino design: if I didn’t know better, I’d swear it was plucked from the pages of The Onion. Of course, there’s renderings and reality. In north Brooklyn the two rarely match.

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:

DOBBIS120south4HAZMAT

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.
