There formerly were a couple of 1-story, 1-family houses here, but now take a look. There are now five 2-family [wink] houses located at 174th Street and 64th Avenue in Fresh Meadows. The plans for each new address bear the notation:
THE LOTS 34,36,38,39,139 OF BLOCK 6902 ARE SUBJECT TO THE RESTRICTIVE DECLARATION OF A SINGLE ZONING LOT.
Make that 5 (five!!) 3-family homes on a single zoning lot zoned R4? What about side yards? And doesn't one have to file Subdivision documents any more when a lot has been developed previously??
That why you are all wasting your time getting your backyard downzoned.
1. They will get any varience they want. With the tenor of our community boards, that is a no brainer.
2. The community will continue to suffer because the surrounding area (the the entire borough of Queens itself) is still drifting from #2 after Manhattan to competeing as a bottom feeder at #5 with The Bronx
3. And when all else fails, the developer will just go ahead and do anything they want. By the time you catch up to them they already have a hole in the ground.
The only way to stop this is to massively downzone the entire borough. But considering the caliber of many of the civics in this borough, we still got some time before they wake up to this.
There is nothing wrong with these houses!
The fences and railings are rusting already. I do not mind if a TWO family unit is built here and there but a whole shit load in one spot that look like CRAP and are built like shit SUCKS.
It's the curb cuts and paved-over front yards that make this crap without a doubt.
If every new building project insists on eliminating all those water absorbing green spaces (front yards, side yards and curb strips) .....as witnessed during yesterday's thunderstorm deluge....you'll all be pumping water out of your basements !
And whichever house is at the lowest level gets a river running through it !
Nature tends to reclaim its own turf ....you boobs !!!!
