I must have passed this spot dozens of times in the last couple of years, but it wasn't until I was stuck in a line of cars navigating the slippery snow yesterday that I noticed that this house at 72-55 Metropolitan Ave in Middle Village was abandoned. So I looked it up on DOB's website:
I'm sure that the lack of permits since these violations were issued, along with all the snow we've had this year have served to worsen this disaster.
