That building is a festering organic pig sty owned and operated by the city. There’s been ongoing construction AND scaffolded renovation for a long time, mud ponds holding primordial ooze, vastly overflowing containers filled with household waste and human detritus… the smell of dope emanating from there knocks one skunkward and Dogshit festoons the sidewalks. I feel the city is terribly remiss in its duties to maintain these building projects to a habitable modicum of UWS Standard and ought to be sued. A terrible human cesspool!
