Hey Queens Crap, I'm Dan over at GerritsenBeach.net (a Brooklyn blog), I've been following all of your St. John's stuff and now I'm a fan of your site. I'm not a student there but my girlfriend is and she is having nothing but bad experiences at SJU over this construction. She used to dorm but now shes lives in the Fresh Meadows and I now follow some Queens blogs to see what's going on in the area.
You well know about the SJU dorm construction which in my opinion has taken away hundreds of parking spots, forcing commuter students to park further into the local communities, but there is lots of construction going on all over the campus of St. John's and no one knows why.
Here are a few of the things happening around the campus:
You cannot enter safely enter though with out sinking through the grass/mud. There is no walking path, and if they do decided to make one, it's better off if they didn't make one.
There are piles of dust from their digging, which is blowing all over the campus, cars and nearby homes.
They are blocking multiple emergency exits of busy buildings all day long.
They have hired people, only wearing St. John's jackets, to direct the flow of students. They basically send people back and forth saying you can go this way. They constantly contradict each other.
The whole campus is buzzing about it, you could hear everyone talking about it. Including most staff.
They are driving heavy equipment all over the campus at peak times forcing people to walk elsewhere.
You can see by the pictures how disgusting and unsafe this all is.
