Abandoned in Auburndale

The owner of this property at 196-29 42 Avenue at Francis Lewis Boulevard demolished this building and garage without a permit after obtaining ALT1 & ALT2 permits to enlarge the building. He then sold the property to someone else whose request to obtain a permit to build a 5-level day care center on the property recently was rejected. In the meantime, neighbors have had to live next to this abandoned lot for more than 3 years.

Same thing at 34th Ave and 47st Street. A series of garages were to be 'altered' (so the permit states), so they built the walls, then the roof over the old structure which one day it vanished!!

Maybe someone in Community Board 1 in Queens keeps track of this stuff and will say something.

Naw, they are doing the really important stuff like preparing for an Astoria Civic dinner dance.
