South Slopers Call Bullshit, Threaten Bondage on 15th St.

When we made mention of the Voice's story on "Too Tall" Radusky's shady dealings on 15th Street in Park Slope?the nine-story building with a "faculty residence" exception and a fresh stop-work order?we knew we would hear from Slopians totally pissed-off-to-the-max by the whole thing. Ch-ching! Looks like the war rages on:

Even with his permits pulled on the 408 15th Street development, contractors showed up to begin excavation of the lot today, July 13th. A large excavator/crane sitting on the site briefly started its engines in preparations for Mondays Big Dig. The excavators crew said they were there to meet Verizon workers who were busy removing the telephone poles on the lot. Verizon reps said valid permits were presented to them in order for the lines to be removed. When Verizon representatives were called on the fact that these permits were void they said they are not in the business of validating whether permits were real or not. The residents of 15th and 16th street will take whatever action, including chaining ourselves to the fence, to stop this frankenbuilding from being built.Why does it seem like awesome protest ideas such as that never quite come to fruition? Human chain, anyone? By the way, the photo of the 15th St. lot comes from rallying site SouthSouthSlope, which also has a shot of those "Not For Sale" signs mentioned in that same previous Curbed entry. See how that all came together so nicely? Sometimes we even impress ourselves.
