Members of Community Board 4 are raising a stink over a construction site in Elmhurst plagued by violations and illegal work.
CB4 angered by Elmhurst construction site problems
Work has been stopped twice in the last five months at the former auto parts store Big Boys Toys at 85-01 Queens Blvd. on Sept. 21 and Oct. 27. A portion of the building still stands, but may soon be torn down if the developers receive a demolition permit.
On Jan. 15, inspectors found work continuing at the site despite the stop-work order and issued a follow-up violation.
CB 4 Environmental Committee Chairman Tom MacKenzie said he reported the site to the city Department of Buildings several times.
