The recently released NYC Essential Construction Map includes two troubled market rate apartment buildings that have been the subject of numerous complaints in Community Board 14, Brooklyn. It is incomprehensible that construction at these two locations is still continuing putting the workers and local residents and everyone else in New York in danger. They gather, they hang out and smoke on breaks next to each other and they are working on top of each other in tight quarters.
None of it seems like emergency work or essential, some of them are just painting rooms, you can see it from the street. They just want to get this job finished and the potential health costs of their workers and the neighborhood is of no concern to them. It is shameful that the Department of Buildings and local authorities are allowing this.
