Nothing like being torn out of a dead sleep by your building lurching back and forth!
My neighbors on the demo side of the building had it even worse. They had what they thought was black smoke pouring into their apartment and so called 911.
Turns out the scofflaws at MMG were once again using a backhoe—which they don't have a permit to use—to tear down what's left of 5 Roebling.
The firemen came, the cops showed up and the MMG troll/job manager from MMG told them that we were overreacting and presumably tried to cover her ass. (She's the midget talking to the firemen.) They determined that it was black dust, not smoke, going into my neighbor's apartment and now my neighbor has a wall that gives when you push it. A different tenant now has big cracks running down her wall.
Everyone in my building has called 311 more times than I can count. Sometimes they won't even take our complaints because they say they're duplicates, which keeps the true number of complaints about MMG's shoddy and unsafe work practices from showing up in DOB records.
Who do we have to blow at the DOB to get an inspector to come out immediately? Because, really, we'll draw straws and one of us will take one for the team.
