Scouting NY brings us the sad story of the crappification of the former home of late preservationist, Nancy Cataldi. As you look at these photos, remember that this comes courtesy of Mary Beth Betts, director of research at the LPC, who never met an unattached house in Queens that she gave a shit about. Specificly, she told Nancy and others in Richmond Hill to go jump in a lake when they requested historic district designation for Victorian homes there.
Nancy's family likely sold the home to a buyer that planned to live in it to ensure that it would not become a teardown. But is this really any better?
Nancy, wherever you are, I hope you can't see this.
