Bit of a situation at 5th and Greenwich streets. Jeff Wiesner, president of the Dickinson Square West Civic Association, alerted us to a family that has been forced out of their home in relation to a construction project next door.
The house in the photo above is in danger of collapse because of digging at a lot next door that was to be new construction, Wiesner says.
“Currently the residents are not allowed inside their home until it is considered safe,” he told us yesterday. “They need food, a place to stay, and a change of clothes. In addition to this, we are seeking a structural engineer to help assess the situation.”
