I live a block away from the construction site in an old (pre-1900s) brownstone. The construction shakes the entire building and I can feel the vibrations last for seconds even after the work stops. I and some of the neighbors are worried that the old brownstones can’t take this level of construction vibrations and movements. The building I live in is “delicate” already without it. I think an evaluation of the effect on the surrounding buildings should be done before work continues.
Not to mention the noise, which is extremely distracting during the day, not only to me, but I’m sure to the students in the school across the street from the construction site.
