A Peaceful Sunday Morning in Williamsburg

This is the building going up at 525 Union Avenue in Williamsburg. It's another Karl Fischer design (no rendering available), however. What attracted us to it yesterday morning around 10:30 was the wonderful symphony of noise emanating from within. The Williamsburg Symphony for Hammer and Saw was loud enough to be heard nearly two blocks away. We couldn't resist pausing for a moment and videotaping because it was some of the loudest stuff in the neighborhood early on a Sunday morning we've heard in a long, long time.

UPDATE: Local activist Phil DePaolo emails that "They started working 8:30 am on Sunday. This site is directly adjacent to the Mount Carmel Church. I also counted five sites on Saturday working in Northside Williamsburg without a permit. So despite the claims by the Bloomberg administration and the Brooklyn DOB that they are being more aggressive regarding illegal weekend construction, it seems like its weekend business as usual in Williamsburg!
