Construction Complaints Rising

From The Daily News: Emergency calls to 911 are up 300% in North Brooklyn; construction complaints to 311 are up a similar number; DOB is issuing 50,000 violations a year citywide, 5,000 stop work orders.

The DOB says:

The fact that we have been out there issuing violations shows our enforcement initiatives are working.

No, this shows that large numbers of contractors and developers don’t give a shit about your rules. No one has to look very hard to find unsafe buildings sites.
