Apologies for the poor photography on this one (I was a passenger in a moving vehicle at the time).
So the Department of Buildings has decided to okay this obvious new building project at 399 Knickerbocker Avenue as an alteration. There's nothing left here but partial walls.
Remember this as you get nickeled and dimed to death by the city with fines, fees and taxes for everything under the sun.
Alteration permits cost A WHOLE LOT LESS than new building permits. The city is throwing millions upon millions of dollars in revenue down the drain on a yearly basis in order to unofficially subsidize development.
Tell your elected official to stop using you as a piggy bank when there's so much wasted opportunity to collect real money to pay for needed services.
