That's looks absolutely safe and up to code...NOT. If I lived here, I would be on the phone to 311 right now. That could easily fall and kill or injure someone.
Let's hope they got their angles and knots right... with the primer and paint up there probably touching up the window casement and headers, not sure if that requires a permit...
This is too good not to follow, EVG!
And there were TWO guys on it at the same time. Anybody gonna call 311?
Relax! Just working on my Pioneering merit badge refresher course! Just look at that lashing. Boy am I rusty!
They're rebuilding the Kowloon Walled City? Cool!
It's another bedroom to be rent out as an AirBnB rental or for college or post-college grads: $1362/month -- chic luxury space, with a terrace and patio, luxurious finishings and an out door space, in a historic urban brownstone; in the legendary East Village locale where there are myriad rolled ice cream shops, Michelin starred restaurant and cupcake and designer bagel shops, and more significantly Beer Store! abound...
Walked by the building just now a girl is out front yelling that her dad told her to get move out now before the building burns down. Someone is apparently lighting too many candles.
What's the big deal here? What could possibly go wrong??
Love your WTF MOMENTS.
I was washing my motorcycle down the block all afternoon and walked past the site a couple of times. The scaffold wasn't over the sidewalk, it was over a basement entrance. With experience working on film locations for the past 35 years it looks very safe and secure for the men working on it other than no guard rails on the decks. Custom cut wood to fit the varied levels of the cement and limited space; rope used to secure it to the railing to avoid scratches that chain Vise-Grips would cause.
...gees, and here I thought I could sleep on it with my custom Day-Glo sleeping bag.
Nothing wrong with that staging at all. Very common post and lintel temporary construction. Smart move to put a ledger under the awning. The diagonal brace providers additional support. Everything that can't be screwed is tied on at every section. 3/4 in decking 16 inches off center. That structure is solid and up to code.
