Update on Stop Work Order Property

According to a complaint filed yesterday, there was excavation in violation of a stop work order going on at this previously featured property at 69-06 59 Road in Maspeth.
However, the buildings department supposedly responded and found there wasn't a problem as the stop work order had been lifted. Their online system says differently. There also are no permits filed to do work like this on the property.

The DOB has never been able to distinguish its ass from its elbow. This leaves a lot of "wiggle room" (deliberate?????.......who knows) for confusion and destruction! The DOB either gets a few honest inspectors (not enough to police NYC) or a myriad of crooked ones! Either way the system is skewed to us getting screwed!

Shouldn't there be a contruction fence where they're doing excavation?? I can't beleive that's not some kind of violation. My kid could wander in there and get hurt.

If the DOB doesn't mandate or enforce a such common sense rule, the entire agency should be 'gut-renovated' from the top down.

That is a good point.

Hey Queens Crapper, you seem to be pretty knowledgable about building codes, do you (or anyone else) know if they're required to have a fence?

Even if they aren't required, you'd think they would have one
for safety's sake.
