Construction workers eating and resting on neighborhood stoops: a regular occurrence (despite developer's pledge)

As I commented, this is a consequence of shoehorning a project of this size into a residential neighborhood and... a reminder of one of the unstated (or less stated) arguments for modular construction: fewer workers on-site. But modular hasn't worked out.

At the last Community Update (aka Quality of Life) meeting, in December, when the issue of workers eating/resting on stoops was brought up, Forest City Ratner External Affairs VP Ashley Cotton commented, "We have gone to them again, to say 'stop sitting on people's stoops.' It's absolutely not acceptable."

That hasn't worked.
