The sad state of a grand old house

Designated as a landmark in 1969 and acquired by the city Parks Department in 1975, the restoration of the Bredt House has been long in the making.

But having completed a feasibility plan in 2006, Parks has outlined three phases of action: Cleaning and roof repairs that have already been completed; structural repairs expected to begin this spring, and the restoration of heat, windows, porches and doors that might begin around 2010, according to an agency spokeswoman.

Preserving a bigger piece of Staten Island's past

The City has owned this landmarkerd property for 33 years and let it this get in condition?
