Brownstone Brooklyn, you never cease to amaze us. Long story short: Man buys brownstone in recently landmarked district of Prospect Heights from old woman. Old woman continues to live in the garden apartment. Man decides he wants to put a garage in there. LPC says they have no applications for Landmark approval for the address.
However, now Brownstoner reports that following some complaints that were filed, a Letter of Intent to Revoke and a stop work order were delivered by DoB. Will the old woman be kicked out? Will gas fumes soon be sputtering on to St. Mark's Avenue? Stay tuned!
Last year a garage was called the ultimate luxury; and there aren't many, at the time the article was written there were only around a dozen listings which included private garages. But would you really bust up a beautiful home and kick an old lady to the curb in order to get one?
