From the Daily News:
To its neighbors, the building is known as "the monster" - both for its size and the horror it has caused them.
The wood-framed building at the corner of 130th Ave. and 233rd St. in Laurelton is outlandishly large, compared with the neighboring one-family homes. It's also the subject of a legal battle.
And even more galling to homeowner Rohn Little, it was illegally built on part of his property, he said, using fraudulent permits.
"I was here one day and they started building on my lawn," said Little, who is taking the developer, Apple Homes LLC, to court. "We didn't plan to build anything on the lawn. We just wanted a place to put some chairs."
Little purchased his home on an 80-by-100-foot lot in September 2007. In April 2008, a construction company fenced off a portion of his property and started work on the building.
"It's the size of a church or a hotel," said Laurelton resident and community activist Marq Claxton. "It's blatantly out of context."
