Berry Bits: Work continues at 78-16 Cooper Ave

Mike Liendo reported the following on Facebook on January 14th: At the warehouse (78-16 Cooper Avenue) tonight there was illegal abating of asbestos going on. Floor tiles were being ripped off the floors. New studs and sheet rock appear to have been put up. With the eyes and ears of residents who are very concerned, they communicated with the right people to get us out there to video these workers working in the warehouse. Meanwhile they are not supposed to be working after hours or even be there because the permits were lifted. Please call the number on the paper for NYC environmental protection. The site was hit with a second DEP stop work order on 1/15/2019. Then in mid-February, the DOB shut the site down by issuing its own stop work order, which has since been partially rescinded. If you see late night or weekend work going on at the location please call 311.
