Little Neck Half-House?

A house in Little Neck is about to experience what western Queens has been going through for years:

Demolition Plans Spark Little Neck Controversy

...Robert Hudak, the [buildings] department’s deputy director of Intergovernmental and Community Affairs, wrote: “It is my understanding that owners may demolish their half of a semi-attached home as-of-right as long as the application meets all requirements set forth in the New York City Building Code, Zoning Resolution and other applicable regulations.”

Although Hudak would not comment further, Woody Tascal, a spokesman for Councilman Erik Martin Dilan, the Housing and Buildings Committee chairman, said no precedent for the project exists to his knowledge.

Woody, meet Crappy. That issue was the very first one featured when this blog was born on December 9, 2006.

Afterall, we don't know any better, right?

They should tear down all of these ugly two-family houses to make way for new and sleek high-rises.

It's funny what happens when a jackass gets loaded on St. Patrick's Day and logs onto Queens Crap.
