Somebody wake us up when it's over and Williamsburg has been renamed Fischerburg
. What you are looking at is the site of a new building that will be going up at Grand and Berry in
Fischerburg. (Official addresses are 130 Grand and 259 Berry.) It will be 5 stories tall and have 22 units. We presume it will cover up the tagging that decorates the new building next door, around which it will be built. It should make like fun at the new building for many months to come. Speaking of which, there have been more than a dozen complaints so far during the demolition to the Department of Buildings. One of them was about the demolition being done mechanically
and undermining the building next door. When the DOB inspected the site there was "no evidence of back hoe being used at time of inspection
." We're not doubting this to have been the case. However, uh, that thing in the picture above, which was not "at the time of inspection" appears to us to indicate--perhaps...maybe--some evidence that mechanical equipment might
have been used. Maybe. At some point. We think.
