I’m a huge fan and been following the blog since its inception. I wanted to tip you of on a beautiful old house in Jackson Heights that looks like it’ll be demolished any day now. It’s on the corner of 34th avenue and 74th street. It sits across the street from what once was its sister house (now a vacant lot), owned by the same family. No telling what either lot is going to be, but the area cannot handle another residential building in the area. Some speculated that they may be building offices. The house is a true beauty and should have been a shoo-in for landmarking but will end up another example of destroying history when something beautiful has outlived its initial use.
Keep up the good fight,
Not to worry, Joe. I looked up the owner info for both sites and guess who's tearing these mansions down?
The Bloomberg Administration!

And there's already a school across the street...
They even got a mechanical demo permit!
