Work is underway on First Avenue between St. Mark's Place and Ninth Street... no idea what they are doing (aside from opening up the roadway with the saw thing), but's a little loud... and northbound traffic is down to one lane for now.

Thanks to Steven for the pics...

That was pretty quick...

Equipment watch: 253 E. 7th St.

A reader noted that a davey drill and other equipment recently arrived at 253 E. Seventh St. between Avenue C and Avenue D... where a 6-story residential building featuring six residences (each condo roughly 1,500 square feet) will rise.

This replaces a four-story residence that stood here until late 2015.

And on the other side of Seventh Street... we haven't heard much about No. 264 (the one on the left), the circa-1843 townhouse awaiting possible demolition... there's a "no trespassing" sign on the door...

In November, The New York Times reported:

Barbara Sloan, the operations manager at Manhattan Renovations, a general contractor representing GlobalServ, said the owner was planning an information session for neighbors “to discuss details surrounding potential asbestos abatement and demolition.”

As far as we know, such a meeting hasn't taken place to date.

There will be milling starting tonight

You may have seen the recent arrival of these flyers from the city... noting milling taking place on a handful of Manhattan streets, including a good number in the East Village.

According to city documents (the Milling and Resurfacing Schedule for Sept. 4-10), work will commence tonight on Third Street between the Bowery and Avenue D, and Fourth Street between Second Avenue and Avenue D. Several other streets, including Seventh between Cooper Square and Avenue D, are on the schedule for Wednesday and Thursday.

The signs note that the work will take place between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. So thankfully you won't even notice most of the work because you will be sound asleep!

Meanwhile, in Great Moments in Project Overlaps, Dave on 7th notes that Con Ed has been replacing gas mains on Seventh Street between Avenue B and Avenue C...

Per Dave: "Apparently the city is going to repave the street before Con Ed is done digging it up."

Construction site at 421 E. 6th St. now with a 'weekly look ahead'

Some residents living near 421 E. Sixth St., currently undergoing a full-blown renovation, have been unhappy with the ongoing construction noise — particularly the jackhammering.

Last week, a flyer appeared urging residents to email the building's owner, art collector-publisher-paper magnate Peter M. Brant.

Now on the plywood here between Avenue A and First Avenue, there's a "weekly look ahead" schedule that outlines the work taking place, and the hours that this will occur...

According to the sign, the jackhammering inside the main building will be complete on Friday ... "and the larger jackhammering machines will then be demobilized from the site at this point..."

Brant bought the building, the former home-studio of Walter De Maria, for $27 million in August 2014. No. 421 will reportedly serve as an exhibition space for his personal art collection. We haven't heard about any official completion date.
