Just awful in Auburndale
Several years ago, a developer bought an old farmhouse in Auburndale, tore it down and replaced it with crap. The construction shut down with the houses unfinished.
An astute QC reader sent in this photo of the eyesore with the comment, "It's NY! Put in as many houses as you can fit!"
The address was formerly 197-20 47 Avenue, but it has been changed to 47-04 198 street. There are 4 two-family houses, one behind the other. Thanks to our messed up zoning laws, this is allowed.
What did this construction replace? A really old 1-family farmhouse on a large lot. Here's the 1924 aerial shot from CityMap. The house was there until 2005.
