A beautiful old house and fountain on an oversized property were replaced with these ugly houses possessing neither style nor design and now - well, the photo speaks for itself. Graffiti on an ugly wooden fence that obscures one side of the sidewalk arch is never cleaned and a chain-link piece of fence at the corner adds extra "bling." This property is located at 65th Place and Jay Avenue in Maspeth and curbs along both sides of it are bus stops, so there is no parking for the many cars that belong to the people now residing in the 4+ dwellings. Notice how the boring blond brick contrasts with the tasteful brick design of the adjacent rowhouses.
