Another Stairway to Heaven
66-16 & 66-18 70th Street in Middle Village were rezoned R4-1 in early 2006 to prevent just this type of thing. This new zoning means that no more than a 2-family house is allowed on a lot within the zone. As you can see, these attached houses are 3-family apartment buildings (and ugly ones at that). This was a large lot that was subdivided. The permits for these houses were issued in December of 2005, in a desperate "get a shovel in the ground before the zoning is changed" move by the developer.
