City Orders McKibben Cellar Dwellers to Vacate


    The Department of Buildings Friday forced residents out of the illegally converted cellar space at the infamous McKibben Lofts in Bushwick. The conditions at 255 McKibbin “are immediately perilous to life,” said the notice posted on a wall in the building, Gothamist reported. The cellar was being “occupied as artist studios,” says the complaint on the DOB website, with “bathrooms and kitchens, egress inadequate, installed gas lines and three-piece bathrooms.” Good times.
