We noticed a full work crew out at Clinton Hill’s 71 Irving Place, at Putnam, although the Department of Buildings issued permits for an interior renovation back in January. The side of the building facing Putnam crumbled one weekend last October. The building, which was unoccupied, had just sold to a new owner. The interior renovation is a total gut: The permit calls for the replacement of existing sheetrock, the doors, flooring, bathroom and kitchen fixtures, boiler and hot water heater.
