A pre-Civil War house with a remarkably well preserved exterior (a former Building of the Day) at 133 Carlton Avenue in Wallabout is being marketed as a development site for $5,200,000, along with two neighboring lots that include another small wood frame house and a convenience store. The house at 133 Carlton Avenue, once used as a church, is a wood frame Greek Revival house built in the 1840s. In his 2005 Wallabout Cultural Resource Survey, architectural historian Andrew Dolkart called this house the “most interesting house on the block.”

Sad ending likely for historic house

That's really sad. Such a cute house, the type that preservation minded people want.
Where the heck is Wallabout? Well, wherever it is, someone obviously didn't think to apply for Landmark Status. Not that much in Queens ever meets approval of The Landmarks Commission.
Wallabout is in Fort Green, Brooklyn
I'm surprised to hear that Brooklyn will sink to the same level as Queens.
