Shaking things up on Borden Avenue
Here we are at 65-45 Borden Avenue in Maspeth. If it's an old one story home, it's sure to be replaced with crap. This one was particularly old, as it had a retaining wall in front of it.
Demolition occurred recently, and as of yesterday, the operation had allegedly caused some damage to adjacent property. DOB hasn't yet responded to this priority A complaint. I think someone has to die before they haul ass out there to investigate. When they do come, they'll just call it a civil court matter and won't even levy a fine.
No plans for what will be built have been filed yet. But the lot is owned by a Fabian, so you can just imagine. The faux mansard roof on the corner building is something else, isn't it?
