The Crapper has long wondered about these 2 interesting looking twin houses on the northeast corner of Laurel Hill Boulevard and 48th Street. They are much larger and more interesting than the attached rowhouses to their right.
Could they have been part of a farm or dairy, as was customary in this area for many years? As evidenced by the looming billboard, an elevated highway sits just south of these parcels, and Calvary Cemetery lies a block to the east.
Both homes along with a ribbon-sized lot are currently for sale - but to "developers only." Perhaps the award that Koren is holding is for actively participating in the destruction of this neighborhood.
100' x 100' and right next to the BQE. Now that has a lot of Queens Crap potential. What developer could ask for anything more?
Here's what's directly across the street. This is likely a harbinger of the green houses' future.
In the meantime, both houses have been hit with multiple complaints for illegal conversion and failure to maintain. The current owner is "strip mining" the properties, as is happening in so many parts of Queens these days, getting the most bang for his buck and then moving on.
