Crack Strikes Again, Part II: South Slope Edition

The well-chronicled development that threatens to swallow up several buildings in the South Slope has apparently struck again. South Slope blogger IMBY reports that the notoriously cracked out 1504 Eighth Avenue is again, "imminently perilous to life." (Only one resident has been sticking it out in the cracking building.) An emailer, meanwhile, warns of sinkholes and doom:

Memorial Bapist Church 20' crack in wall!!!!! I have multiple cracks in my patio 17' in from the property line!!!!!!!!!! My entire backyard is sinking and shifting. My neighbors tree has fallen over!!!!!!! I believe DoB needs to check out entire block before it's to late!!!!Maybe somebody can do up a youtube vid as the neighborhood slides into the hole?
