The saga of this building at 100 Clark Street in Brooklyn Heights, which the Department of Buildings began taking down on an emergency basis after it was deemed dangerous is getting interesting. Two floors of the deteriorating building were supposed to come down, then it seemed that plans were take down the entire building and, then, the building's owners managed to get the work halted. In the meantime, there have been complaints to DOB about "creaking" sounds coming from the building and of debris falling onto scaffolding and of shoring being put up by workers. (Part of one complaint: "CALLER THINKS THE REST OF THE BUILDING IS GOING TO FALL/THERE IS MOVEMENT IN THE WALLS OF THE BUILDING.") Three words: cross the street.
