I STOPPED by the super swank Symphony House residences yesterday to have a chat with Richard Basciano about his killer building.
“Is he expecting you?” the cranky concierge asked.
Well, I didn’t know if the owner of the crumbling building that flattened a neighboring Salvation Army thrift store was expecting me. But he should’ve been expecting someone – like officials from the city seeking answers about his choice of a discount demolition crew, for starters.
Basciano’s company paid some insta-demolition crew $10,000 for a job demo experts said should have cost closer to $250,000.
