The Importance of Knowing the Gear You're In

The restoration of 134-136 Warren Street was a long time in being realized. The project was before the Historic Preservation Commission for several months in 2014 before a design for the ground floor at 134 Warren Street, which was to be converted to commercial use, was finally approved. Then there were the many months of work on the building. Finally, just two weeks ago, the awnings were installed on the ground floor windows at 134 Warren, and the reality looked like the rendering the HPC had approved.

Then yesterday, at about 5 p.m., a driver leaving a parking spot apparently made the mistake of thinking the vehicle was in Drive when in fact it was in Reverse. The SUV jumped the curb and crashed into the portico at 134 Warren Street.
