Fugazy on Forest Avenue

Forest Avenue in Ridgewood has seen some dramatic changes recently, but there still are a lot of smaller homes along the way. This stretch is pretty modest.

Unfortunately, there is crap underway.
3 STORY DWELLING FOR TWO FAMILY WITH ONE OPEN OFF-STREET PARKING SPACE, BATHROOM IN CELLAR SHALL BE USED SOLELY IN CONNECTION WITH THE DWELLING UNIT ABOVE.
Why would you convert a 2-story, 2-family building into a 3-story, 2-family building? And how is that thing jutting up from the top not a 4th story?

Wow what a shithole! Look at all those paved-over front yards! Queens is sooooooo ugly!

Because the new owner paid too much to the previous owner for it to be worthwhile as a single.

There is blame for both parties here...and yes, it is awful looking.

That unmentioned 4th floor has got to be for airbnb, might as well put a neon vacancy sign when its done.

In fact at the way this city and economy is heading, every homeowner should get one

That "fourth-floor" bulkhead is for stairs or an elevator to reach the roof. Rooftop parties are all the rage.

As to the Dwelling Unit in the cellar, i.e. 0.5 of the first dwelling unit -- is living in the cellar allowed?

>one off-street parking space
But since that will mean a curb cut that no one else can park in front of, it's a net loss of parking, not a gain.

What a sad sight.
