GL's Construction Site Du Jour: Doing Crack at N. 10th and Berry

128 N 10th One

We featured some night shots of this building at N. 10th and Berry, courtesy of our Greenpoint correspondent last week, and had a look ourselves in daylight this weekend. It does not disappoint. The sidewalk has been undermined, the fence is now out in the street and could take your eye out if you're not careful and the building next door is doing crack. Don't take our word for it, though, even the Department of Buildings has noticed. Quoth the inspectors in writing out a Partial Stop Work Order that only seems to allow work to prevent a collapse of the sidewalk or neighboring buildings:
There is no shoring of the adjacent foundation, the sidewalk has completely collapsed, there are cracks in the foundation wall at 130 N. 10th.
In other words, just another day in North Brooklyn. It's supposed to be a four-story building with four units.

Christ, it looks even worse only two weeks later. If my memory serves me correctly, the foundation for the neighboring house on Berry wasn't looking too good either.
