Yes, it is ridiculous that a cement truck fell on a house in Greenpoint while said truck was in the process of pouring concrete in violation of a stop work order. But Bob Scarano was not driving that truck. Why not single out the contractors – they are the ones doing the shoddy construction. Why not single out the developers of these projects – they are the ones ultimately responsible for shoddy construction practices.
This was all over the blogs already – why can’t the Post do some original reporting and find out who is hiding behind the veil of LLCs that develop these projects? Name some names – who is it who is hiring architects that cut corners on zoning, contractors that work without permits, subcontractors who drive into other people’s houses?
(And as always, Miss Heather has the more nuanced take on truck incident.)
