Things are building up at 48-04 43 Avenue in Sunnyside. Check this permit out:
"To construct the vertical enlargement of one story with a penthouse above and to convert from two family dwelling to four family dwelling as shown in the plan."
What a concept...double the earning potential of the place by making the apartments smaller! Looks like quality-of-life is really improving here along with the quality of the architecture. That balcony? Totally belongs there. The western wall is completely blank save for a small window. (Hey, why not add a billboard to maximize the ROI of this building?)
Bottom line: There's some bad feng shui happening here.
