North Brooklyn Scarano Buildings Have Bad Weekend

It wasn't he best weekend on record for some North Brooklyn buildings designed by one of Brooklyn's most visible architects. First, the Department of Buildings decided that the Robert Scarano-designed Modern on N. 7th Street, on which they'd just lifted a Stop Work Order, wasn't ready for work after all. (Turns out some problems like damage to a neighboring building hadn't been addressed.) So, they went back and slapped a new Stop Work Order on the fence. Then, a truck tipped over into a house in Greenpoint as cement was being poured in violation of a Stop Work Order on a Scarano building there. Some weekends are a lot harder than others.
