yesterday, a surveyor was on my street. in light of all of the construction on franklin, i asked the surveyor, "please don't tell me you're going to rip up half my street and put it under construction for the next year."
he told me, no, they weren't going to. with relief, i started to walk away, and then asked him, "what are you doing?"
"we're putting up a big apartment building. right here," he said gesturing at the area across the street from me. great. my rents will rise, and that will be even worse construction.
i need to get out of greenpoint.
