Demolition watch: 99-101 E. 2nd St. (Stop Work Order edition)
Here's a look at what was 99-101 E. Second St. just east of First Avenue...
This two-story space housed several short-lived restaurant concepts in recent years, including Bento Burger ... Marfa... and Waikiki Wally's.
No. 99-101 and its property mate, 24 First Ave. (below), are coming down to make way for a 7-story, 22-unit residential building called 101E2 via developer Sergey Rybak.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday afternoon, we spotted a DOB honcho outside the plywood speaking with a worker... telling him that he needed to have — something to the effect of — the proper paperwork for the property.
The official then slapped a full Stop Work Order on the site...
According to the DOB website: "STOP ALL WORK, PROVIDE FENCE AS PER SSP [Site Safety Plan], PROVIDE MONITORING PLAN/REPORT."
