Not even 24 hours after taking photos that documented those incredibly high weeds at 9th and Grand, the lot is being cleared. At about 2:30 pm today, a group of men were hard at work on the lot, a site that was at one point supposed to hold a Gansevoort Hotel (the project was ultimately canceled). (That note from the city--ordering the removal of the weeds--also returned to the fence today.) The fine man in charge of managing the site told us he is thinking of "using weed killer" in the future. Advisable.
