the waldorf has been scaffolded for almost two years, a whole city block, even though as far as I can tell they are only working on one side. However, it being the waldorf, we can be sure it will come down eventually.

there's a building across the street from us (high end condo) that was scaffolded (not just sheds, nets all around the facade) for 7 years !! Some sort of legal battle between contractor, scaffold co and building... facepalm.gif

ugh, and here I was ready to complain about the building on my corner. First 3 years I lived on the street it was covered in scaffolding. Even worse, it always smelled like urine under there, I'm not sure why since it's a fancy building.


any time you see scaffolding going up, my thought is never "oh neat, they must be renovating something", it's "oh hell, now I'm gonig to have to look at this for a looong time"

Perhaps Bloomberg has realized that the sun is harmful and this is his way of protecting the population.

manton, great point about the front bumper, now that i think about it, that is so true.



gdl you have never seen these around the city?
post #231 of 7382
I have seen those. Just very very rarely. And especially not on nice cars. I was surprised it would come up here.

Why do people feel the need to stop fights?

A good HOA would solve all that scaffolding eyesore problem.

nine thousand percent humidity today and for the rest of the week. It's actually going to get WORSE as the week wears on. Yay!

It's amazing to me that 71 degrees could feel so wretchedly uncomfortable.

Because some people have these things called "feelings". These "feelings" compel them to not want to see people get hurt. I've never really quite grasped it myself.

Gotta keep letting people retire with full pension and benefits after 20 years, so save money by screwing the customer!

Yup don't know how the NYC clotheshorses here abide the 90 degree 90 humidity zero motion air in the subways.
