Brick Facade of 286 Grand Street Collapses Onto Sidewalk
A little incident to report at 286 Grand Street.
Friday afternoon, a section of “brick veneer” on the second floor of the building apparently dislodged and collapsed onto the sidewalk below. The area was quickly cordoned off, and Department of Buildings inspectors dispatched.
The next day, a crew assembled the necessary sidewalk bridge for safety.
An ECB violation was later served for “failure to maintain exterior building walls.”
Two years ago, this threesome of row houses was singled out as the next gallery incubator. That didn’t happen, and the properties remain largely dormant.
