More proof that zoning is a joke

From Brownstoner:

"one way to ruin a cute row of circa 1940's Tudor style single family homes? Throw an illegal extension on the roof of one of them and create a stalled work site." According to this tipster, despite a Stop Work Order still being in place, there was activity on the site last week.

You'd think by now, city planning would have adopted a measure that prohibits this kind of ridiculous blight on the streetscape. But that might actually improve quality of life in this city and do nothing to help developers.

Popping the top on these should NOT be allowed! It truly ruins the landscape of the block!

They should be forced to take it down and restore it to what it was!
