Whipping Boy at the Modern

Despite what the Post says, DOB did not slap Scarano with a stop work order for the Modern – they slapped the SWO on the owner and his contractors. Unless Scarano was digging the hole, its the contractor who is responsible for the work. And if all the posts at GL are any indication, neither the developer nor the contractor give a shit.
(And no, this is not an apologia for Bob Scarano, just a polite reminder that architects design building, they don’t build them.)
