Slideshow: Today’s Work On Evacuated P.S. 60 Building

East 12th Street was closed this morning so that a crane could hoist contractors who performed work on the building’s northeast corner. Until now, workers have been disassembling bricks, one by one, from the middle of the building’s eastern wall. Today, they drilled a series of holes down the building’s northeast corner and hammered in metal spikes; a bungie-esque cord is currently wrapped around the corner of the building that’s closest to 12th Street and Avenue A. A worker on the ground said they were checking to see whether the building’s wall was still bulging.

Watch The Local’s slideshow to see this morning’s activity and the current state of the wall. We’ll have more on the relocation of Girls Prep and East Side next week.

Also: Flyers being handed out near the church parking lot, which was the site of the Mary Help of Christians flea market but is now being used by construction vehicles, indicate that the flea market will be at Immaculate Conception Church every Saturday, starting next week.
