In recent days, workers covered the storefront — the long-shuttered Taj Mahal — with plywood. A reader described the city's arrival here as a "commotion," with what looked like an eviction from the basement where several people were living/working.
Anyway, the DOB slapped vacate orders on the basement space (dated from Tuesday) ... noting "that conditions in this premises are imminently perilous to life."
VACATE OF COMMERCIAL BASEMENT SPACE. AT THE TIME OF INSPECTION OBSERVED TWO LOOSE CERAMIC TILES DIRECTLY OVER MAIN ENTRANCE TO COMMERCIAL SPACE IN BASEMENT. OATH SUMMONS FOR FAILURE TO MAINTAIN AND VACATE OF COMMERCIAL SPACE ISSUED.
Obviously, we're all thinking the same thing: Why didn't the psychic see this coming????????
And are two loose ceramic tiles "imminently perilous to life"?
