Canyon-Johnson Urban Funds rode to the rescue of stalled Brooklyn Heights condo conversion 20 Henry Street, but Magic Johnson and his team were soon taking heat for hiring a controversial contractor to work on the old candy factory. Now Canyon-Johnson has posted a note at the site defending the record of Leviathan Construction Management, which the mcbrooklyn blog posted, right above this warning: "Meanwhile, holds your kid's hand when walking by the site: a section of the fence was down yesterday morning. A deep, slush-filled pit, dug for the foundation of the planned second building, is right on the other side of the caution tape." A safety guarantee and a new public pool? For a Laker, Magic Johnson really knows how to treat New York well!
