This from a BHB reader:
This picture depicts the scene at the corner of Pierrepont & Willow Streets at 10pm last night.
The workers were approached by numerous people and asked to stop putting up the scaffolding. They refused, saying they had to finish the job and work through the night.
It is unclear who is running this construction site. Repeated calls were placed to 311 and the 84th precinct, who said crime comes before noise. Eventually, at around 11pm, the ruckus, which had been going on since the early evening, ceased–but not after one of the lovely workers basically threw a wooden plank on the street, angry that residents were coming out to demand they be quiet. The workers were jumping around on the scaffolding, dropping poles, drilling, and basically trying to make as much noise as possible. While some higher power must have eventually intervened to make them stop, the question of what will happen tonight remains.
