Testing Starts at Controversial 360 Heavy Metal Building Site

Testing work has gotten underway at the site of the controversial building that will be going up at 360 Smith Street. An email we got said that workers were on the job by 8AM yesterday:
Residents were quite shocked to see two trucks on the site and one large dumpster. People counted "5 spots" that they dug. Some people say they are determining how far below the roof of the SUBWAY!! station is.
Apparently, an email went out from the Carroll Gardens Neighborhood Association saying that Council Member Bill de Blasio's office told residents that testing work would be starting:
Tom sent a quick message today to let everyone know there would be some testing activity at the 360 Smith site. They will be digging at the site to test boundaries (the ceiling of the MTA station and the foundation); the testing will consist of digging and then refilling the test area.? This is testing only and not the beginning of
Pardon Me For Asking, from where the photo above came, has many photos of the activity.

great - I can't wait for this to screw up the F train. I didn't even think about that possibility until now.

Ton Gray's "quick message" arrived a la pony express at 6:00 PM on a local list serve no less after all the drilling was already done. Given the existence of telephone lines and email addresses in the C.G. area, that wasn't exactly "helpful" from the Councilman's office's end. Next time, a simple telephone call or two, or an email, arriving BEFORE(!) the end of the business day might be infinitely more "helpful".

If they screw up the F train or at the very least the subway entrance that will be a nightmare if it coincides with the 9th St. station renovations.
