A reader noted that a sidewalk shed went up last week outside the American Felt Building on East 13th Street ... where, for some reason, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have a place or two. Anyway, nothing all that revealing at the DOB... something like "for installation of spacecraft landing pad." Per the DOB, in their ALL-CAP style:
ALTERATION TYPE 3 - CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT - SIDEWALK-SHED INSTALLATION OF HEAVY DUTY SIDEWALK SHED APPROXIMATELY 26 L.F AS PER PLAN AT 114 EAST 13 STREET. DURING REMEDIAL, WORK SHALL COMPLY WITH 2008 BUILDING CODE CHAPTER 33. NO CHANGE IN USE, EGRESS OR OCCUPANCY.
And, for making it this far, a bonus... Miss Holmes with a drink from Everyman Espresso down the street on Nov. 9.
