Sinking Sidewalk Leads to SWO at 197 Berry Street


After a long, quiet winter, the action picked back up this spring at Quadriad's huge development site between Bedford, Berry, North 3rd and North 4th in Williamsburg. Not so fast! The project got slapped with a big, fat Stop Work Order last night. The reason, according to the DOB: "The sidewalk is sinking about 1 feet (sic) below street level because of construction - in danger of collapsing." Holy crap. In the wake of 493 Myrtle, the DOB ain't messing around with this stuff. Can anyone get a photo of the sidewalk for us?
