Late last week, The Launch Box posted some photos of a Vacate order posted by the Department of Buildings at 1772 Second Ave. Today, The Post reports that vibrations from the Second Ave. subway construction are to blame. According to reports, the ongoing construction around Second Ave. and the low 90s has cracked the façade at 1772, and officials fear the building’s structural integrity could be at stake.
On Saturday, the building was evacuated, and residents and local business owners are blaming the SAS construction. The MTA, according to spokesman Jeremy Soffin, is “closely monitor vibrations, which remain at acceptable levels.” Meanwhile, the building has a DOB record of structural complaints dating back to 1989. Make of that what you will.
