scaffold a day: dutch kills (l.i.c.)

37th Avenue near the N train

Here, the sidewalk was completely closed off, so there was no need to erect a sidewalk shed to protect passersby.  It's also a new building, so there is no public access required to the site.  This site is on the border between an industrial zone and a residential zone; there was almost no pedestrian traffic, so closing the sidewalk seems to have had little impact.

This is temporary, right? Otherwise, and perhaps anyway,
sets a bad precedent. Let's remember that public space is just that. Is there a permit up?
This site is 1 block away, in almost each direction, from busier streets.
