Watch Noisy Concrete Trucks Begin Work at Empire Stores in DUMBO

Work on Empire Stores in DUMBO began yesterday. A BHB tipster sent us video of concrete being poured and notes, “They backed the pump truck in at 4am and the cement trucks came all day.”

    That’s a bummer. They should let the Empire Stores fall down…and turn Dumbo back into a sleepy backwater for artist and city/state office workers. Time to move to Vinegar Hill, I guess…

    Cause when your landlord is the Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corp, you can do whatever you want! The people who live in DUMBO are meaningless.

    So what are they supposed to do, not do any construction so you won’t be slightly inconvenienced?

  • marshasrimler

    it seems that all of the folks in the 52nd assembly district are meaningless. Look at the over development all around us

  • MonroeOrange

    no…just not start at 4am? what is that unreasonable?

  • Eddyde

    Doesn’t it occur to you that there must be a reason to start concrete pour at 4 am?

  • MonroeOrange

    yes…to annoy people…is that the reason?

  • Susan C.

    Did I miss it or isn’t anyone curious which stores are going in as Empire Stores?

  • Eddyde

    You really think they would, schedule a pour at 4am, pay extra wages to tradesmen and get an after hours permit, just to annoy people?

  • marshasrimler

    i am curious

  • Andrew Porter

    Is this any different than garbage trucks blowing their air-horns at the same hours?

    There Is nothing to be curious about look at the bright side after all the noise your apartment will be worth a half million more than current.
