Mold, and Anton's clothing, uncovered during triage of converted condo (video)

Manhattan general contractor Jeff Streich of Prime Renovations sent us this comically disturbing video he filmed on the job at a two-year-old Midtown condo conversion. 

Hired by the owners of a $2 million three-bedroom apartment to fix a sloppy sponsor renovation, Streich finds the remnants of what appears to be a desperate cover-up of a leaky heating unit.  At least we hope that explains the presence of the mysterious Anton's clothing, and that Anton himself wasn't a victim of shoddy construction.
