Attorney Street Noise

Posted on: June 22nd, 2009 at 8:18 am by

The graffiti-laden no man’s land of Attorney Street just north of the Williamsburg Bridge is edging ever-closer toward re-development. A couple months ago, our compatriot EV Grieve noted that the 25-by-100 foot corner property at 178 Delancey was put on the market for $3.2 million.

Now this “frontier” is once again active. Over the weekend, a concerned resident wrote to inform us of the oppressively loud construction work at the once-overgrown 91 Attorney Street lot. All the noisy excavation and earth-moving is reportedly making lives miserable for neighbors in the immediate vicinity. It appears that the stop work order that was on this property is no longer in effect.

There is an idiot in an excavator trying to tear apart an old truck in a vacant lot at that address… and it’s actually shaking my entire building. If this is the caliber of crew they’ve hired to build something new there, I cant wait to see the piece of shit eyesore that goes up in a week.
