Arrivederci Windows: How to Save on Windex in Greenpoint

Arrivederci Window

We've shown this Greenpoint building before, but in a different context. Now, our Greenpoint correspondent reports a commotion at the site and sends along new photos. She writes:
When I walked by there, a bunch of firemen were milling about. Two engines had even condoned off traffic on the block. Don’t know why they were there, but maybe the fact that the contractors are (were?) bricking over the next door neighbor’s window(s) has something to do with it???
We've never had it happen to us, but we can only imagine that it sets the blood pressure to spiking. We haven't seen renderings of the new structure, and we can't tell from the photo below if windows were bricked up on the right side of the building, because the job was so complete. However, unless the building is going to be lopsided, could be more window loss on the left.

Those windows are known as lot line windows. It's most likely perfectly legal brick them up. To bad for the owners of those buildings.

Talk about staring out at a brick wall!
At least they won't have to pay for the exposed brick decor.
Honestly, though I feel bad for the homeowner. Losing your view and air/air flow really sucks.

What's up with the gray camo car in the bottom photo? Urban commandos?
