340 Court Gets More Carroll Gardens Love & a Wiki
The general infrastructure and specific components (e.g., clay drain lines, wooden cornices atop homes) are very vulnerable to damage -- Mr. Lantz's cornice has already begun to detach from his building and could pose a hazard to passers-by. This, coupled withe the way the asbestos removal was handled, has catazlyzed myself and my neighbors into pursuing increasingly substantative forms or protest.Sounds like the community is looking for some Make Nice from the increasingly combative developer.
We simply do not feel a builder has a right to damage our homes without detailing any plans to compensate us for the actual damage and dislocation to our livelihoods it also entails. We are organizing increasingly substantative means of exerting political, economic and social protests and activism to combat this. If Clarett chooses to address our concerns (and conduct the work at 340 Union) in a forthright way, we'll be glad to work with them. But if things continue as they have gone, I believe I speak for a large number of my neighbors that we will become increasingly active against them.
