Construction SiteDu Jour: Deja Vu All Over Again at 568 Union Avenue

Manhattan Chocolate Fence

We return to the formerly nasty demolition site at 568 Union Avenue, which was the Manhattan Chocolate Factory, due to the fact that its construction fence seems to be demolishing itself. The site--which still has dumpsters full of debris--is open to the public and the fallen fence itself offers up rusty nails. The Department of Buildings has already noted in writing some violations that the fence was "in danger of collapse." Uh, make that "has collapsed."

You posted a photograph of a collapsed fence at 568 Union Avenue showing two elderly people walking toward it.

Did you take a moment to pick up the telephone and call 311 to report the HAZARDOUS CONDITION to the Department of Buildings? I just checked the DOB’s web site and the answer is NO! If somebody got hurt since your post, it is your fault!

Once again you have proven to the entire world that you do not care one bit about the safety of anyone. All you are concerned about is trying to make a name for yourself.

i agree with that previous comment.
what's the point of these "stories?"
this is the whiniest lamest site i've ever seen just the same crap over and over and totally irrelevant. no objectivity whatsoever it's all new construction sucks all the time here - it must pain you to be a puny little gadfly on the back of the stampeding development beast that you can do nothing to stop but i bet if you bought a place you'd do a prompt 180 you self-serving asswipes.
