An unusual number of Polish Hill buildings seem to be sporting scaffolding or ladders lately. This is a good time to work on building exteriors; the hottest days are past and there is still a month or more before the weather starts to get chilly. The church is getting some attention — although we don’t envy that guy dangling off the side.
This building at 3117 Dobson is getting some touch-up on the third floor windows. Long ago, the first floor was a butcher, but it’s all residential now.
This building, at 3206 Dobson Street certainly needed some work, but that scaffolding looks a bit precarious. Unsecured scaffolding placed on top of stacked cinder blocks on an uneven sidewalk? Somehow, we don’t think that’s up to OSHA standards. A number of residents have commented on this situation, and it has been turned in to 311.
