Make Your Very Own Illegal Apartment!!
It appears that the developers of this urban trailer park on Flushing Ave in Maspeth are getting a bit anxious to sell the units. The realtors are advertising the nice two car garage that comes with one of these units - and enticing potential buyers by pointing out that the garage can be converted into an illegal apartment! The full listing was recently changed (4/7) to remove this illicit suggestion. Queens Crap remains disturbed (but sadly not surprised) that illegal conversions are so common place that they are openly discussed and encouraged in the real estate ads.
If any potential buyers are thinking about making such a conversion, please be aware that Crappy and the neighborhood will be watching and we love to get on the phone with the Department of Buildings.
Note: Crappy is laughing his metal behind right off the bowl at the "Superior In Workmanship And Design" comment at the top of the ad and the quote from the development's website below...
"Atop of the concrete block structure, window accents created in the stucco create a look that can be seen in the many of the homes in the affluent Forest Hills Gardens area of Queens." HA HA HA HA HA
