Many readers have noted that scaffolding around Brooklyn Heights poses a threat for damage and injury when Hurricane Irene lands here later tonight.
Mrs. Fink called National Grid this morning to find out if they planned to remove the construction horses in front of 24 Willow Street before the storm hits. The company claims that it is sweeping all of its work sites and will have them secure by tonight. (Update: As of 8:30pm Saturday night, the barriers are gone and the site has been secured.)
Also, a BHB reader noted that the roof of 72 Poplar Street was strewn with various construction items. With the help of the BHA’s Judy Stanton the potential hazards were removed this afternoon.
