Sometimes, when homeowners get reported to the Dept of Buildings for having an illegal occupancy, they get mad. When they're actually caught with an illegal conversion, they can get furious. They want to "get back at" the people that reported them.With the anonymous complaint system in place, how do they seek revenge on the one person who reported them when they don't know who it is?
Heck, they might as well get back at the whole neighborhood, then.
This is one homeowner's intelligent response. He had a 285 square foot "horizontal enlargement" approved by the beauty pageant people at DOB. Yes, this green monster attaches itself to the original house like a parasite. Pure beauty, wouldn't you say?
