From the Brooklyn Paper:
The owner of an ever-expanding Manhattan Beach McMansion has racked up more than $100,000 in violations for illegal construction over the past eight years — and now the additions are intruding on neighbors’ property.
Michael Tropp, who lives on Norfolk Street between Shore and Oriental boulevards, didn’t bother to apply for a permit nine years ago when he connected two neighboring houses to make one huge home. He has since improved the house in numerous ways — all the while racking up fines for illegal work and ticking off his neighbors.
“His house is illegal and he’s out of his mind,” said Oriental Boulevard resident Flori Kostoff of the contentious property owner. “He’s building on other people’s property.”
On top of that, he hasn’t even paid most of his fines.
Here's a list of the infractions.
