Wearing hard hats at home

The bricks started crashing down the chimney into Jillian Jaques' lower Manhattan apartment the day a demolition crew began taking down the parking garage next-door.

Demolition firm 'wrecks' havoc

The source of Jaques' problem was the demolition company working next-door - LJC Dismantling. Records show that the firm has racked up 18 city Buildings Department safety violations and four federal job safety citations in the last 18 months.

During that time, LJC jumped from project to project across the city - 10 in all - leaving a trail of havoc in its wake, a Daily News investigation found.

Poor little yuppie child !
Have you phoned "daddy" about your "plight" ? !!!

Try living in one of the two frame houses in Queens that sandwich a construction site and having the pile driver's constant pounding shake everything that's not nailed down off your walls !

Shiver me (construction) timbers !!!

I couldn't agree more with the previous post, where is the story of the Queens family whose foundation and walls are crumbling to pieces for the sake of some developer cutting corners on safety in order to make a quick buck.

Looks were in the same boat because if its not my belongs falling of the walls, its bricks coming loose from the chimney and the gods knows what from 9/11 that coming down too. And why would this girl call her parents? What the f'ck will they do...Moron.. So quick to judge... Correct thing to do is call 311 who will connect you to DOB, hopefully they'll send some out and make the right choice to halt on demo - and then maybe your problems will be noticed too... READ THE ARTICLE AGAIN!!!

I think the correct thing to do is to call 911 if you feel you are in danger.

My IQ certainly super-cedes the "moron" level that you've assigned it....and my reading comprehension score precludes the need for me to "read the article again"!

Thank you for your "constructive" criticism !

Your English syntax needs improving....by the way !
