Construction began on the new plywood perimeter fence early Friday morning, and was completed by end of day. As reported earlier, this sandlot at 148-154 Delancey is to sprout a new six-story Holiday Inn.  With DOB permits in hand, work will soon be underway on excavating the land and pouring the foundation.
