From the Queens Gazette:
Bernard Caligari, a trade union activist, spoke out about demolition of a building at 5-36 46th Rd. The developer wants to clear away the building and build dormitory facilities for New York University students. Caligari was at the meeting to denounce the demolition man on the project, whom he characterized as having a long list of indictments, whose presence on such a project was infuriating to him. He asked Board 2 Chairman Joe Conley if he and the board were aware of what is going on there, and Conley said he and the board were following it.
Interesting that when I look at the permits issued, there is none for demolition. Yet, they were shut down for unsafe demo and allowed to start again. Notice there isn't even a demo company listed for the procedure.
