There has been a lot of activity this past week around the ConEd substation along Avenue A and on Fifth Street and Sixth Street.
ConEd hired people to block parking spots on both sides of the facility (many of the vehicles had car alarms that liked to go off for no apparent reason, per neighbors).
A ConEd employee told this to EVG contributor Stacie Joy:
"We're replacing a transformer in the station. Since it's so small in there, they set up remote units for the employees. Not all the employees but some of them. We will be here for maybe one to two months, I believe. We will try to keep things quiet! It's a big job."
