They’re a little late making that announcement. That street’s been closed for months. I’m treated to the epic sounds of construction every morning at 7. some sort of giant pile driver doohickey. The company subcontracted to the MTA sent letters to everyone on my block ( 46th btwn broadway & 34th and i’m one of the last houses before 34th ave, so i’m right on top of this) back in November, saying that starting in Dec (though they started in January)they’d be closing off that stretch of street, take parking spaces on northern blvd and that impact to 34th ave would be minimal. Bull honky!! They’ve taken an entire block and a half of 34th ave for parking, ripped open the road numerous times and consistently park other vehicles across driveways, plus they made us turn off our water overnight once too. It’s been miserable living on this end. And even though it has an end date it seems inteminable.
