Passing gas

Hey remember the post Brown Harris Stevens redefines "top end"? Well, we received this very interesting photo which shows what's going on there now. The official address is 53-14 82 Street.

Seems like the old Walter Funeral Home folks that was the previous buisness on this site will soon come out of retirement to do some consulting when this gas line blasts off.

Who else other than Brown Harris Stevens can redefine top end? Top the ammenity of a century worth of ghosts living amongst you when you purchase a unit here. Wow - LIC developers cannot top this!

I'd just call Con-Ed/BUG (or whatever they call themselves now - Keyspan?) - that's a bypassed gas meter, and they are stealing the gas - you'd be surprised how fast they will be down there to shut THAT down

Rube Goldberg would have loved
this "Klassy" hook up.

Nice opportunistic soft target for a low end terrorist.

Just ram your car into the exposed pipes....
drop a lit match....exit quickly....
and....KA-BOOM....demolition by gas....
(no permit needed from DOB)!

I've heard of stealing someone's thunder....
but stealing their gas.

If I wanted to do that.... I'd have my nose
up the person's butt that's directly in front of me
when I'm climbing the stairs.....
the next time I exit my subway stop.

Those exterior flexible hose connections
are totally illegal and VERY DANGEROUS !
