GL's Construction Site du Jour: 33 Roebling
Last time we started to honor 33 Roebling, AKA 236 N. 10th Street, we came upon the interesting fact that Enrique Norten and TEN Arquitectos will be the project architect. So, it's only fair that we return to original purpose, which is to point out how wide open the place is and what a crapfest the fence is. It's also more fun these days for your inner construction fan, as there's construction equipment sitting atop a mound of demolition rubble with which to play. Then again, the Mayor apparently found out that the Department of Buildings is, um, a tiny bit behind the curve when it comes to doing its job by reading the Daily News, so what's a crappy fence here and there? We have total confidence the city will get up to speed now that the mainstream media has told them about the disaster that has been hiding from them in plain sight on blogs and via the thousands of calls to 311 that seem to have, um, been routinely ignored. In the meantime, stuff like this is fun for all the kids in the neighborhood!
