"I live in an historical property - the Herman Schleicher Mansion/Grand View Hotel - built in 1853 and landmarked in 1997 - located at 11-41 123rd Street, College Point.
I need your assistance in bringing the media's attention to what is going on with this property.
We have vacated the property since an electrical fire on July 9th, 2008.
The owner has over 80 violations which include the electrical violations that were never repaired and caused all the families (seven) to be vacated from the mansion. Two of the units were illegal units and we also found out that one complaint mentioned that a tenant died in 1997 as a result of an electrical fire." - anonymous
Sorry to inform you that you were Queensmarked, not landmarked. Your absentee landlord in Florida, who has racked up tens of thousands of dollars in fines, probably would not have gone for landmarking considering how the building has been kept up over the years. The house has no protection at all. Bulldozers may be on their way.
