Making a McMansion out of a rowhouse, part 3

There once was a row of small houses along Shore Parkway in Brooklyn.
But someone wanted to make a mountain out of a molehill.
It blends in so well, you hardly notice it!

Just by looking at that oversized house, its obvious some people can't live by the rules like the rest of us.

They're infesting Astoria too and they are laughable.

They couldn't at least use the same color brick?

No this is cheaper. Most SqFt for the buck is the only goal.


Do you really expect someone who is dumb enough to invest money in a house that size ACROSS FROM A HIGHWAY is going to have good taste?

No, it would cost a few pennies more. I'm sure they just grabbed whatever was overstocked at the supply yard.


You cant expect someone who is dumb enough to build a huge house ACROSS FROM A HIGHWAY to know what good taste is.


Its the same problem they have with the Bukharan Jews in Forest Hills. People with more money than sense.

Some readers like myself don't know what's going on here: (1) Was the construction illegal and the laws not enforced? (2) Was the construction illegal and made legal by an exception or variance or whatever it's called? (3) Was the construction legal according to the current zoning, and it's merely an eyesore?
