Has Third Federal Bank Woken Up & Smelled the Liability? Maybe.
Despite Third Federal Bank's denial of safety issues surrounding unfenced 12-15 foot deep foundations at George Michael's struggling Canal Street housing development in downtown New Hope PA, new fencing has miraculously appeared.
Guess Third Federal Bank finally figured out that the possibility of children plunging to their deaths might be bad for their corporate image, or maybe it was the sagging, shabby look it gave to their already cheesy sign. Could it be George Michael or the Borough realizing that deep unfenced foundations and drops around the site are a hazard to citizens and workers alike?
Meanwhile, despite claims to the contrary, work activity continues at the site. Below, two workers today on a moving platform two storeys up seem to say, "Look, ma! No hands or hardhats!"
