Shortly after Mighty Quinn's opened last month, we heard from some anonymous upstairs neighbors about the smell coming from the popular BBQ joint on Second Avenue and East Sixth Street.
We live in the building and our apartments & hallways reek of barbecue, all the way to the top floor — it's coming up through the radiators, walls & floors.
Perhaps some relief is on the way. CB3's Landmarks Subcommittee meets tomorrow night, and on the agenda:
Cert of Appropriateness: 103 Second Ave to show the exhaust duct running along the façade of the building
The CB3 website includes a PDF of the engineering plans for this new exhaust system ... from inside the restaurant...
... and on the East Sixth Street side...
The building here is part of the East Village Historic District that came into existence last fall. According to the plans for the new exhaust system, the work "will not affect any significant architectural features or decorative masonry." In addition, plans show that the new ductwork "will bypass the decorative cornice feature at the sub-roof and coping stone at roof and will not alter or compromise it in anyway."
The meeting is tomorrow night at 6:30 at the BRC Senior Services Center, 30 Delancey St. between Chrystie and Forsyth.
