I guess the bloom is off the rose. Found this up on the Buildings Departments BIS web page describing the following complaint...
"Re: BUILDING SUPPORT BEAMS BUCKLING & WALL MOLDING CRACKED DUE TO PRESSURE. DRY WALL BULGING IN HALLS & APT 3A. BUILDING NEXT DOOR HAS HISTORY OF POOR SUPPORT."
Too early to to make a guess as to what's going on in apartment 3A, but let's hope it's not what I think it means for the Armory Heights Plaza Apartments; To suddenly become immanently perilous to life and be hit with an emergency vacate order.
There's got to be a perfectly reasonable explanation for the new drywall to crack and bulge, after all this is south Slope "black tie tuxedo" construction at it's finest.
Could this "bulging" be related to:
Or maybe have something to do with this:
UPDATE 5-20-09: Inspectors checked out Apartment 3A today and found:
"NO VIOLATION WARRANTED FOR COMPLAINT AT TIME OF INSPECTION
NO STRUCTURAL DAMAGE IN APT 3A NO CRACKED MOLDING"
False alarm! Rest easy everyone...
