Demolition by neglect (and DOB)

I didn't realize this before, but according to McBrooklyn, 100 Clark Street in Brooklyn, which the city is in the process of demolishing for safety reasons, is landmarked. Or I should say, was landmarked.

The latest is that the demo was stopped when the owner went to court against the city over the forced demolition.

HDC must be plotzing over this one.

The preservation community is a joke. All they care about is their back yard.

They will NOT help grassroots efforts, and indeed, undermine them with every chance they get.

We should overturn the Landmarks law and start over.
