Video: noisy, undisclosed work at B12 site, where there's no construction fence

Guess what: the Construction Update for the two weeks beginning 9/2/19 didn't disclose that that, on Saturday 9/7/19, trucks would be using the B12 site, on Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues, as a staging area.

They appear to be used for concrete--there are two towers, B4 and B15, for which there is ongoing Saturday concrete work.

The problem, as Dean Street resident Peter Krashes wrote in his comments on the video, is that there is no noise mitigation.
To my recollection, Empire State Development stated previously that the lack of a construction fence for B12 on the Dean Street side is due to the lot being assigned to LIRR/MTA staging, and ESD also (surprisingly!) implied LIRR /MTA is exempt from the project's environmental commitments. This work appears to have been associated with B4 or B15 contractors, not LIRR.
Residents on Dean Street are impacted by the work whichever entity produces the adverse affects.
Perhaps this will come up at tonight's Quality of Life meeting. Even if it was associated with Long Island Rail Road work, noise is noise.


  1. They have been using the site to wash out concrete trucks for a few weeks.
