Park slope

Well la de da, it's another pile of Queens Crap along Calamus Avenue. :::Yawn::: Wait, what's this?
The driveways seem a little too steep.
So steep, in fact, that they needed to install steps next to the parking ramp. Not a blade of grass here, either. Have fun during the next rainstorm.

This can not be legal. Where is the DOB on this one.

OH, I forgot.....we really don't have any DOB enforcement.

Money talks???????

You know what they say....shit runs down hill.

This property provides a public service - a place for water to collect during major storms, maybe this not so bad. The cute ramp entrance ramp leading to the front door could be likened walking the plank during bad rain storms - Pirates of the Carrebean! Maybe the driveway could be used to practice skiing when it snows.

great for sleigh riding too, with the added thrill of crashing into a garage door and knocking yourself unconscious.

After a rainstorm, this Calamity Avenue house has a basement garage pool. Now that's what I call a luxury condo!

Actually, it is the entrance to the netherworld. Dante and Virgil just slammed the door and left.

Should be very interesting for the people who live in those basement apartments. Because you know they will have people living in them!

Idiotic to say the least.

who needs Dante or Virgil? We've got Crappy to spook us with depictions of hellish regions, like this one in Park Slope.

This is Woodside, not Park Slope. I used "park slope" as a title because of the slope of the parking ramp.

oopps, my mistake. Guess I was eager to believe that these hideous homes were located in Brooklyn, instead of here in Queens. :(

How long before a car breaks down the garage door? Imagine trying to drive out of the garage while looking straight ahead - at the sky. Is there any ability to actually SEE pedestrians? Imagine gunning your engine to get up the hill on snow or ice (perhaps clipping the stairs or your neighbor's car on the way out). Then, wheels spinning, you hit the sidewalk and street. Anyone coming? Hope not.

Amazing. Abysmal-Crappo-Revival style. Between the "architects" and contractors there is nary a shred of decency. Ironically Ken is sort of right, this is the logical outcome of the "as long as it is in NYC, they'll rent or buy it" school of thought.

Crappy should have left that in the porcelain snow-globe.

going to promote building catch basins
in all these flooded basements

problems during heavy rainfalls !

Got flood insurance....you homeowners' ?

"shit runs down hill."

Brilliant! So damn true. It's another Woodside abortion.
