Today the Daily News ran a great story on Marie Grasso, the bitch who nearly knocked over my building while demoing the cabbage factory next door. Apparently she is not only a total hottie (nice bathrobe!), but a huge scofflaw, owing the city over a million bucks in fines! Yet she still gets city contracts! Great job, Mikey B. Something tells me Marie Grasso isn't tearing down buildings in your neck of the woods.
The reason she gets these fines is because she is such a scumbag that even the incompetent building inspectors can't ignore her. And believe me, they try. We must've called 311 a hundred times and got very little action. She hires people who don't know what they're doing, doesn't provide hard hats or any other protective gear, and just generally doesn't give a shit. Her company ripped out all the phone and cable lines from our building because they were "in the way" and then just shrugged it off. If you want to read about our hell, you can here, here, here or here. I feel sorry for the people she screwed over badly enough to actually have a building inspector take their complaints seriously. They must be missing walls!
This is the kind of story that makes me really miss Bob Guskind and Gowanus Lounge.
The one funny part of the whole equation, is that looking at the photo, I'm pretty sure she's the woman I met at the site who claimed she just "worked" for Marie Grasso. She's like bulky, unattractive version of Vicki/Nicki on One Life to Live.
