It's never a good sign when you come home and some guy in a hardhat is leaving your building. Turns out he was from the Buildings Department. He'd just slapped up a stop- work order on the gutted house next door, and, with help from the super and co-owner of my place, put up caution tape in my backyard. There's a danger that the abandoned carriage house, seen there on the right, might collapse. On moi, instead of the two Rovers which park in the space between the carriage house and big house. An eyesore and home to feral cats as long as I've lived here, the corner property suddenly came to life this week with some workers doing who-knows-what (not enough!) inside.
