Construction Site Du Jour: 61 Huron in Greenpoint

This beauty and pubic safety hazard is 61 Huron Street in Greenpoint. It will ultimately end up (perhaps) as a six story building with 15 units. Curiously, the original application on the property was submitted by the King of Brooklyn Architects Robert Scarano in 2000. The current architect is based in Astoria. There’s a partial work order on this shitshow, resulting from the initial (brilliantly worded) complaint that “CLR STS ACROSS FROM THE ABOVE LOCATION, CONSTRUCTION SITEFACADE JUST CRUSHED ON TO THE SIDEWALK AND STREET.” The only work allowed is to protect adjacent property and to, uh, fix the freaking fence. Note to DOB: The stinking fence is on the sidewalk and the site is wide open. You might want to send one of your inspectors over to write more violations that will be ignored because you have no effective enforcement system. Excellent work and a shining example of how the new and effective “reorganization” has so improved public safety.
