Okay, now I'm angry, really angry. I've just been reading on the TA Facebook page that residents around the construction of the new management office are being woken up at 6am due to work being started early in the morning on the building--sorry, "cellar extension." I don't live in the affected area, but I certainly feel for the tenants there, as I'm sure we all do. According to NYC noise codes, construction can only begin at 7am, unless there is a special authorization from the Dept of Buildings that authorizes otherwise. I know that management has received such authorization for work beyond 6pm, but I'm not aware of any authorization before 7am. I've also never heard of DoB authorizations allowing work so early in the morning in a residential area. Does anyone know if such a new authorization has been posted on the site? (I'm at work and can't go to the site myself.)
And look at this monster "cellar extension"!!! (Photo from TA Facebook.)
I'm going to add more content here later, if I can, including a review of what CW/CompassRock promised about the noise and disturbances arising from this work (promises that I knew were bullshit), the TA and Garodnick's responses, etc.
Sorry I can't deal with this expeditiously, but I have to deal with work now.
