Repeat problem: debris again falls from B3 site, leading to partial stop-work order

It happened again, on a Sunday.

Just a week after debris rained down from the B3 (38 Sixth Avenue) construction site during high winds, neighbors on June 12 noticed the same thing. Reads one complaint to the Department of Buildings:
PLANKS OF WOOD AND CEMENT HAVE FALLEN FROM THE CONSTRUCTION SITE. IT HAS FALLEN ON MY DRIVEWAY AND ON MY FRIEND'S CAR.
That complaint remains unresolved. Another complaint reads:
FDNY REPORTS DEBRIS FALLING FROM THE SITE DOWN TO SIDEWALK SHED
That was resolved with a partial stop-work order, as with the incident a week earlier. That partial stop-work order, which was quickly lifted, didn't seem to fix things.

Perhaps it will all be discussed at the Community Update Meeting tonight, hosted by Empire State Development, the state authority overseeing/shepherding Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park, with developer Greenland Forest City Partners.

Remember how modular construction--once planned for the entire project, then dropped--was supposed to severely reduce trucks, noise, and weather-related construction problems? Unmentioned, such construction methods would have lessened the chances of such neighborhood hazards.
