From the Daily News:
The owner of an abandoned Forest Hills house that has irked neighbors for decades is finally being hauled into court.
The city recently deemed the dilapidated single-family home at 93-07 69th Ave. an "unsafe building" - prompting a hearing.
For neighbors, who have filed numerous complaints over the years, it could be the beginning of a solution to a blight on the otherwise manicured block between Juno and Kessel Sts.
The house is filled ceiling to floor with junk, posing a fire hazard, neighbors say. They also fear the roof, connected to adjacent houses, may collapse.
The house has racked up at least seven violations from the Buildings Department since 1996, including failures to maintain the exterior, broken windows and frames, and in May, an "unsafe building" designation.
It's that last violation that requires the property owner to show up in court.
