What it takes to build a six-floor mansion on a narrow East Village street

We're hearing from more and more residents complaining about the construction at 331 E. Sixth St. ... and the noise/congestion is only intensifying ... (Didn't help that film crews for the Coen Brothers were on the block for three days this week...)

Anyway, here's a quick look at the work taking place at the ol' Schwimming hole ...




The city has logged a few complaints at the future David Schwimmer home ... the most recent at the DOB is dated March 2, stating:

ILLEGAL CONSTRUCTION WORK BEING DONE AT THIS LOCATION WITH EXPIRED PERMITS. WORKERS CAN SEEN ON-SITE BETWEEN 7AM-6PM. TONIGHT THEY WORKED UNTIL 8PM

P.S.

Goggla notes that an old piece of the wrought-iron fence leftover from 331 E. Sixth St. is there for the taking...

If that fence is still there this afternoon, I'm gonna take it. Those wrought iron fences are worth money to people who actually care about restoring old buildings.

Man. That's a beautiful piece of fence. I wish I was closer so I could come by and grab it. Such a shame it's being tossed aside. Schwimmer's a loser.

Worst. Neighbor. Ever

I walked by this morning and the fence is gone. Workers were throwing things into a dumpster, so I really hope they didn't trash the fence - it was the only original piece left of #331.

You know Schwimmer's never even going to move in after all this (100% deserved) bad publicity. He'll just flip this hellhole to some other rich idiot with no taste. All this destruction for nothing. Gah. I hate interlopers.
