Weird tale from Brooklyn

When demolition began in May, the 1852 mansion possessed five stories. DOB knocked off the top two and was eating into part of the third when the owner went to court to have the wrecking ball halted.

And there the poor old building stood -- bulging and creaking -- until last Wednesday, when a $25,000 repair job was approved by the Department of Buildings. As shown above, a new roof has been built on what used to be the ceiling of the third floor.
