Well, let's see what we have here. Looks like an alteration permit for a couple more floors.
Ah, yes, that's exactly what we have here. Nope, this isn't a new building at all.
And in total context with the other homes. Whoops, what's this? A stop work order for failing to protect adjoining roof. But not for constructing a new building instead of an alteration. Interesting. This is what happens in the non-landmarked sections of Jackson Heights.
