The residents of 59, 61, and 63 Conselyea Street have a bone to pick with their building's architect, aka Brooklyn barredchitect Robert Scarano: he forgot that they need a place to put their trash. The condo residents say they've been fined by the Department of Sanitation for putting trash enclosures on the sidewalk without a permit, DNAinfo reports. Condo board president Penny Stankiewicz explains, "We have no common area to put trash?the city has no code requiring developers to actually build a garbage room."
This is apparently a broader problem among the neighborhood's new buildings, even coming up for discussion at Brooklyn's community board 1. But in the case of 59, 61, and 63 Conselyea, surely there's a "mezzanine" somewhere that could double as a trash room.
