Stop work order at day care with cellar conversion
From the Queens Chronicle:
The Department of Buildings issued a stop-work order pursuant to its intent to revoke permits and approvals for a construction project at a Happy Dragon day care center in Flushing on July 7. Its decision comes little more than two weeks after land-use expert Paul Graziano and state Sen. Tony Avella (D-Bayside) warned that the project — which includes a cellar conversion — could be dangerous for the children.
The building is located at 30-04 146 St.
In an interview last month, Graziano said he had never heard of a day care center legalizing a cellar and expressed concern that using the building’s cellar would put the children’s lives at risk.
