Dear Crappy: HELP
The Huang project that has been stalled for a few years and without permits is a dangerous site.
If you pass by (39-39 223rd Street) that danger can be visibly seen. Once again, the fences are down exposing local children to danger. Perhaps you could do and article with photos and send it to the STALLED PROJECT TEAM of the DOB?
The Huangs, for some obvious reasons, have not applied to the BSA for any consideration for their project in the past. The project is seemingly DEAD IN THE WATER. It is hard to tell with NYC, the DOB, FDNY and other relevant agencies, if this will ever be permitted to be completed. Emergency vehicle access is a prime concern to the neighborhood now and in the future. It clearly did not have the required approvals for all pertinent agencies to even begin this project.
In actuality the road called Mia Drive, I was told by and inspector, should not even be closed off by a construction fence. Due to the condition of the road and the surrounding areas of the project, they have let the fence stay up for so called Safety Reasons. Unfortunately, the fence has never been constructed according to code and constantly falls down. The Huangs have never had the property enclosed by a construction fence as required by the DOB Code.
How long does a neighborhood have to live with a project such as this? No one seems to care. Even though the surrounding neighbors hate the situation, they fail to ban together to try to get the City to take action against the Huangs. The local politicians forgot about us, the East Bayside Homeowners Association, the Community Board and the CIty Agencies have left us to live with this horrible project.
Stalled Project Program: What happens to projects that don't qualify? Is there a remedy to get them torn down?
Congratulations and thank you for your good work.
