Williamsburg Gets Banged: Big Pile Driver Pounds Union Avenue

Union and Ainslie

We came across our favorite North Brooklyn pile driver again. Now, the Empire Pile Driver--Brooklyn's best bang--has resurfaced at Union Avenue and Ainslie Street, which the epicenter of much Williamsburg construction east of the BQE. Those who've heard this baby banging away say that it's got both size and staying power. That sweet sound of TSSSSSSSS-KER-CHUNK-KER-CHUNK-TSSSSSSSS-KER-CHUNK, etc. should be hanging around the nabe for a while. Excellent!

I live at 372 Union and love that power driver! If I did not have a day job I may ask if I could run that bitch!
