Developer turns LIC home into hellhole
From the Daily News:
Kenny Greenberg and Diane Hendry have been living in a broken home for years - and dealing with broken promises from a developer they say destroyed their Long Island City house.
The couple's two-story townhouse was severely damaged between 2006 and 2008 when Casa Vizcaya, a five-story condominium, was built alongside it on 46th Road.
The condo developer agreed to fix their home, but now the repairs have stalled and they're living in a dangerous and active construction site, the couple said.
"It's been almost three years since our house was literally cracked in half by East View Construction," said Hendry, an artist. "Every day, I'm exhausted by this ordeal."
The damage described by the couple reads like a homeowner's worst nightmare: bulging walls, floor-to-ceiling cracks, leaking water and the entire basement floor split in half.
Not sure if the side of the development pictured is Kenny's side, but it is worth pointing out that it's on the same block that the Hunters Point house hole is on.
Damn shame what Burden did there.
