Some smarty-ass bought a gracious old Dutch colonial home on an oversize plot in Broadway Flushing located on the southeast corner of 163rd Street and 35th Avenue.
He planned to demolish it and build two houses there, but the intrepid Broadway Flushing Homeowners Association promptly took him to court to enforce their deed restrictions which only allow one house on that piece of land.
They won their case, as usual.
The judge allowed the demolition of the existing old home but enforced the Rickert Finlay covenants which run with the land in perpetuity.
Now the greedy owner is left holding the bag with an empty lot he has to either unload or build a single family home on.
Don't-cha just love the smell of victory in the morning?
It smells like the owner's money burning. - The Flushing Phantom
