Smoke Break & Work at Greenpoint's 143 Huron
We won't pretend to know a darn thing about construction safety (insert comment here about how we know nothing about a lot of things), but what we do know is that we can look at some things and have them strike us as unsafe. So it is with what is shown here. These photos were sent along by our Greenpoint correspondent, who has kept track of the goings on at 143 Huron, particularly the late night construction antics and lack of city action on the problem. On the left, the gentleman working is standing on either an upside down pail or a block. On the right, the two workers taking a break are on a very narrow scaffold. And so, we ask: safe or unsafe? You decide.
