The dormitories at Glendale’s Yeshiva Godolah Seminary exceed legal limits, according to one city agency.
After Community Board 5 (CB 5) voted to recommend denying the yeshiva’s request for a zoning variance earlier this month, the school was hit with a violation from the Department of Buildings (DOB) for violating current zoning regulations by housing students within the school.
The yeshiva is located within an M1-1 zone, which does not allow for dorm facilities. The violation, issued on Oct. 16, is for the illegal conversion of the school to have dormitories outside of the zoning regulation.
“Based upon a recent audit, there is an intent to revoke issued,” a representative from the DOB told the Ridgewood Times. “The audit determined that the space used was nonconforming for a Use Group 9 facility. The legality of the use of the dormitory space is currently under review.”

Just a misunderstanding.
The lawyers will fix this!
All part of the show - a mere distraction.
They will pay a fine, it will fall off the radar, and puff, someone will again approve it and retire...
Totally agree with ^^^ (sarc) .. this is all a smokescreen... Its the Queens way! Looking forward to seeing the new dorms open up in the spring..
So dorms are not okay but homeless shelters are?!
when they say dorms the unspoken word is "homeless shelter"
Sounds like bias against orthodox Jews to me.
No, this is one place you can guarantee will never be a homeless shelter.
You can say a lot of things about these dorms and their residents, but it's not a homeless shelter, that's for sure.
