The Department of Buildings has confirmed that inspectors visited the site of the Islamic Cultural Center (2812 Voorhies Avenue) today, and ordered all workers to cease construction immediately for violations of their partial Stop Work Order.

Upon inspection, the department found excavation work being performed that violated an existing Stop Work Order on the elevator pit. As a result, the agency is in the process of issuing violations for non-compliant conditions.

The partial Stop Work Order has been in effect since January 14 after rescinding a full Stop Work Order in place since January 6. The SWO’s were a result of complaints from opponents to the construction of the Islamic Cultural Center.

This morning’s inspection likely came at the urging of Bay People, who had an ongoing e-mail exchange yesterday with Ken Lazar, community liaison for the Department of Buildings, complaining that excavation continued in violation of the Stop Work Order. The e-mail included photos (one is above) and video.

Here is the text of the e-mail:

Dear Mr. Lazar,

Please note that your response to our email is viewed by Bay People for what it is: an attempt by the Department of Buildings to cover up its gross negligence.

Excavation resumed at 2812 Voorhies as soon as the Complete Stop Work Order was amended to “Partial” and your office and DOB was aware of it from our numerous 311 compalints. You are also aware that NO excavation could have been witnessed today due to the fact that they COMPLETED excavating ILLEGALY despite the Stop Work order and the equipment is no longer there.The fact that the inspectors  were at the site and observed no violations does not show that the violations were not occurring. The builders know about complaints posted on line and wait for the inspectors to show up before they continue work. The pit didn’t magically appear weeks into the stop work order, it was methodically dug up! (VIDEOS ATTACHED)

The easiest way to show the violation of the Stop Work order would be for the same unit which issued the order to see the changes at the site since the SWO was issued. Do they remember what it looked like a month ago? Are there  pictures? There are, we and other neighbors sent it to DOB on numerous occasions and would be happy to-resend the e-mails. You are asking for evidence….Well we are sending in to you with before and after pictures and videos of exacavation that violates the partial stop work order (videos taken 1/20/2011.)

Photo 01-25 11-151 shows excavation at the elevator pit.
Photo 01-26-11-152 shows that excavation was completed

Our complaints are not “accusation” but legitimate concerns expressed by residents of the community. We have witnesses, pictures and videos confirming continous excavation at the site. Moreover, DOB received a video of the excavation on 1/20/2011 (sent by Brian Reid.) Why didn’t you mention it in your response? Who are you covering for? Why are you lying to every person copied on this email? Being a “liaison”, did you contact the people who observed the violations, did you visit the site before and after?

2812 Voorhies has multiple complaints, open violations and unpaid fines. The paperwork is still not in order. Multiple documents are not signed or dated, some documents have wrong names and addresses. And we are not even talking about mistakes/falsification and omissions in the plans, just the obvious things that can be observed without being an architect or an engineer.

Unfortunately, residents of Sheepshead Bay have no choice but do the work the DOB has failed to perform.

Please contact us shoud you have any questions:info@baypeople.org or 646-673-6297

    No matter the motivation, no matter how lazy DOB is with other worksites, or how fair they treat others doesn’t matter.

    The builders are breaking the law. Period. Until they are in compliance they need to stop. The reason and source of the scrutiny doesn’t matter if the law is actually being broken. Which it is.

    While it’s sad that people are shining a light on this work site for the wrong reasons, it has to be said that ALL construction sites should be under the same scruitiny. If people were this methodological then it would have been much more difficult for all these condo’s to go up.

    • Good Government Now!

      I agree, the DOB is practicing selective non-enforcement. I believe there’s a conspiracy in the Bloomberg administration to leave a legacy of architectural turd and disaster across this city.

      • Anonymous

        Yes, the DOB is very selective in its enforcement. Perhaps they chose to attack the Mosque because a bunch of well heeled ignoramuses flex their financial power. Though I was happy to see a stop work order on the Condo between T & S on Ocean Avenue. The problem with that is the empty shell that remains. It’s truly disgusting when I see more and more empty lots in the neighborhood left by shoddy and disreputable developers who destroy old homes to put up crap condos or some such other. Those things that do go up aren’t built, they’re poured. That references all the wooden molds for fancy garnish ornamentation they leave in their dumpsters. Horrific.

      This is big government, Lisanne! The laws are so convoluted that ANYTHING they want can be stopped. I’m sure if it was a tribute to Ronald Reagan that was being stopped on these bogus violations, you’d be yelling in favor of it.
      I agree with you. The alleged violations are probably a lot of bull. But again, this is the big government heavy hand that so many people want when it supports them, and suddenly are against it when it doesn’t.

        Furthermore, I’m quite sure when it comes to building Walmart, the liberals are going to dig up every last code violation they can find. Are you (I mean plural or general “you”) in favor of these techniques or against them? You can’t pick and choose.

          when they ticket the crazy drivers, the politically correct word used is “aggressive ticketing”, meaning of course “those nasty police are being so unfair”.

            What can be said of red light runners can also be said of those louts in their SUVs honking their horns indiscriminately and in violation of all those signs that say “Horn Honking: $350 Fine.

        All she knows how to do is quote various American laws and Constitution, forgetting that these laws and Constitution have no meaning for Islam faith. None what so ever. Tomorrow if Muslims had to show their loyalty to Islam or American, she thinks they will pick America and liberty it represents.
        They have their own laws of existence and I hope day comes when she will experience it first hand. She will be preaching Constitution, but she will still be an infidel to them, she will fight for their rights and they would not think twice to harm her just because her faith might be different.

      If DOB receives complaints, they have to check it out. If willfully they don’t, it’s malfeasance in public office. They saw that a deep excavation for the pit of a lift shaft was too close to and deeper than the foundations of the neighbouring property. To excavate like that is to remove support from the ground under the neighbouring foundation, and possibly to cause damage to gas service pipes. To continue is reckless endangerment of both the construction workers and the occupants of the neighbouring building. Having observed this they could not ignore it. They served a stop-order citing the excavation. The contractor should have satisfied the DOB by having an engineer sign off on ground support requirements and supply a designer’s risk assessment and a construction method statement. It’s not rocket science. Observance of professional ethics should prevent you from carrying on regardless and hoping for the best (the excavation pit sides will not collapse, Inshallah?). This is everyday engineering pragmatism, not politics.

Then we have this Bullshit with Osama hiddennoneexsistance Binladen…. There’s like 40000 Different Pictures of the guy With not one picture that actually Looks like him…..

            whats next your going to use 9/11 as the only way out of this argument the day America was attacked by Mentally Challenged suicide bombers…. Right…. If you speak about the internet you know you can find all sorts of USER uploaded Propaganda.. which clearly show Explosions coming out of the Towers to make it Look like a Demolition instead of the Soo called Terrorist Attacks that you all know about…. But why the Internet? Why not the Media? THE INTERNET IS OPEN SOURCE…. Unlike….. Television Which goes threw tons and tons of Editing….

            So next time you bring up terrorism do your Research… On the Internet first.

            and whoever still thinks it different is Ignorant.

      Its useless posting it here. These a** kissing liberal idiots do not understand anything that is going on. They are blind and deaf, like ostrich that hides its head in the sand while its a** is sticking in the air for all to see. They have never been affected by any Islamic terrorism, not directly anyway. They should read this and perhaps understand why people feel the way they do about Islam.

    Stepping over the issues here that appear to be based on bias, the thing is DoBuildings screwed up – again- big time. We see this sort of treatment all the time – a complaint is called in and 311 posts it – well in advance of the actual inspection (heads up!) – then show at the site and report condition not found – sometimes they just post “address not found.”Take a look at this job: the new applicant, an engineer, has been disciplined by the Department of Buildings. The permittee, AB Design Build, has had his licensed yanked by Consumer affairs: check the jobs he’s done in the past, and the complaints filed (not to mention the fact that it is illegal in NY to style a firm “design – build” when the owner isn’t a licensed architect. Finally, how can an individual build a mosque? I’d think a religious entity of some sort as owner would be a pre-requisite. That is certainly not the case here – Dept of Finance shows no exemptions since this guy bought the parcel.

    • levp

      Links?

      1. Google search does not yield any complaint or license revocation information for AB Desgn Build;

      2. I can not find NYS requirements for the word “Design” or “Design/Build” in the company name. It appears that in general a company would be required to have a licensed architect in their staff, not necessarily as an owner.
      See relevant discussion here:
      http://www.areforum.org/forums/showthread.php?t=177093

      3. I can not find any restrictions on who can be an owner of a building for religious use.

      you want to start that game?! lots of PE and contractors in the area and involve in this game of hate, and will be under the Eye of God Google. By the way I saw alot of illegal occupancy in the area. lots of voilations will be served, and DOB inspectors will be too busy around the Mosque area if you want to start the game of 311. old men have nothing to do but calling 311….!!lol

      I think Muslims should do the same,,, and if you see something say something…. good idea for the organizers..lol

      how is that Nid !!!?

      sorry to give such ideas but some of the posts pissed my dg off,,lol

        Dear “lol”, it would be a miracle if your words actually made sense. But they do not, so I am ROFLOL. Maybe you should learn some English before posting here, because using “lol” at the end of each sentence does not compensate for total lack of clarity.

    i ate street meet for lunch today and now feel quilty knowing 2.50 out of the 5 bucks i spent will go towords builing an istitution where hate towards America will be taught.

    The issue I have with all of religion in general (I myself am a non practicing Jew) is that the onse who practice it are all full of sh*t. Jews, Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Budhists etc. A person who would trully believes in God would never break any laws spiritual or constitutional knowing that punishment from God would follow in the afterlife. Which is why I don’t believe in Gods existance…..there is just no order on earth. When my manager is in the office, everyone does what they’re supposed to. Guess what happens when he’s not present?

    So any true beliver in Islam would just walk away, knowing they are causing turmoil in the neighborghood and would look for a more appropreate area. There must be a bigger picture here. This is just a money laundering scheme. Where would an unemployed guy get cash to buy a property? This is not about relligion!!!!!! Wake up….someone just wants to funnel money through a mosque. I personally dont care if it goes up or not, even though I live around the corner. I’ll just sell my property to a nice muslim family.

    I would agree with those of you who think that we are picking on mosque-builders because of unjustified prejudice. Problem is, the prejudice is justified. In this religion, a mosque is a symbol of conquest. They will have claimed this territory for Islam, and eventually the residents will be pushed out as Islamists assert their desire to implement a worldwide Islamic kingdom.

    Think the Nazis were bad? Just wait till we’re all subject to Islamic law, without being in Islam. Your lives will be miserable and you’ll only have yourselves to blame for not stopping this while we still can. It’s too late for UK, France, and a few other countries. It’s not too late here.

    Money for these things comes from Saudi Arabia by the bucketload. They are funding mosques the world over to train their Wahabi terrorists. Saudi funded mosques are not houses of worship. They are boot camps for Islamic supremacists.

    • CantWeAllJustGetAlong

      True.

      But, why do some people don’t get it?

  • CantWeAllJustGetAlong

    Call 311 (if you see something, say something)

    Ask for BUILDINGS DEPARTMENT

    Call if you see “unsafe work conditions” or anything to protect Public safety.

    • Guest

      I wonder if we can call INS and report illegals working at the site? That would be fun to watch, them scurrying like roaches across Voohries Ave.

      • CantWeAllJustGetAlong

        The department is HomeLand Security ICE (immigration and costumes enforcement)

        They are backed up with cases.

        They are already informed.

    Listen up, whether you are an opponent or proponent of this project. Similar situation was happening in Staten Island, Midland Beach, where sale of former convent to MAS was going to happen. Residents of the area picketed and protested and did everything possible to stop the sale and they DID IT!
    Sale was canceled and mosque/school/cultural center was never built.

    Bay People! Contact Midland Beach civic association perhaps you can discuss with them your concerns on how to fight successfully, although I think your lawyer does a great job, perhaps there is something that you can do to help him fight your fight.

    By now, any reasonable person, who wants to be in the community, would have realized that if he wants to be in that neighborhood for some time, he needs to win people over. This Ahmad guy does not care, and all his assurances that he wants to be a good neighbor worth nothing seeing how he ignores stop work orders and clearly has no respect for zoning and other laws.

    Islamic Cultural Center?  What will they be teaching?  Maybe they’ll show the proper way to bury a woman for stoning and the proper sized stone to use.  Maybe they can have videos on how to perform a beheading, or how to construct a proper suicide vest.

    The sad part is that many mathematical advances were devised by Arabian people, as well as some legal terms and procedures such as the insanity defense.  The term “Touched by Allah” refers to a man out of his mind.

    Now we are out of our minds because we are not making them adhere to safety and judicial laws that were made to protect all citizens.  They have no respect for our laws or our people.  Why are we coddling them?  Is there some directive issued by the Muslim-in-Chief at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?  Hopefully, he will be gone soon.  Normally, building inspectors are always there demonstrating their authority, sometimes with their hand out.  Have they been saved a trip to the jobsite?

    Building plans should be approved before ANY construction is performed.  If the elevator pit is endangering another building, why were they working on it?  Maybe it is time to seize the property and stop all work until the fines are paid and new building plans are approved.
