Elmhurst half-house to be demolished!
One of the very first dung piles featured on this blog was the "Elmhurst Half-House" back on December 9, 2006. This spectacular architectural abortion featured a low-rise attached house converted into a 4 story modern nightmare but still appearing to be attached to its former twin.
Well, the NYIMBY blog brings us the news that demolition permits were filed back in May for the smaller building. The replacement will be 4 stories with 7 units.
I'm not sure which is worse at this point: the house in its current embarrassing condition or the replacement.
