a piece of our back yard disappeared
leaving a gap about two feet in at its widest, and stretching along the width of the planter, which now hung over a deep drop. The space next to this was my best vantage point for seeing what was going on, but I don't think it's too safe to stand there right now. Even the workers seemed a bit taken aback, and some sort of temporary support was put in place. I had a bit of trouble calling in my complaint. The first 311 person insisted on 911ing it, when I really just wanted an DOB inspection. This led to a ridiculous police visit. The second one said there was no category for my DOB complaint (I didn't have the codes in front of me to help her)so I had to give up. The third person, with a soothing voice reminding me of Sonia Sotomayor, was calmly efficient, so we should have someone visiting the site in within 1.5 days.
