30-03 Newtown Avenue Is Ready For The Holidays!

Some of you might recall my post earlier this month when I confessed to having a fit of Astorian demolition envy.

30-03 Newtown Avenue 11/04/07

Well, a very astute observer, New York Shitty commenter and fellow D.O.B. critic vintagejames noted:

The devil is in the details. The demolition permit for 30-03 Newtown Ave. is for a 1-story building; the one being taken down has two. Also, look at the demolition checklist. Code A11 is for 5 day notice to adjoining owners. Was that done? Those wonderful people who undermined the foundation of the building that I live in did not bother with that little item, although the permit at bisweb said it was filed. In keeping with their mantra, the DOB swept the issue under the rug.

I beg to differ, James. The fine folks at First Class Wrecking got their facts straight and received a demolition permit for a two story house at the aforementioned address the very same day! Not that it really matters much; 30-03 Newtown Avenue is a one story structure nowadays. What’s more, a nice Christmas wreath adorns the front door.

Happy Holidays!

Season’s greetings!

Good will towards men!

Please Keep Door Locked…

And Santa, please lock the door when you leave.

  2. The ‘keep the door locked’ pic and the dog with the dick pointing at his mouth are both priceless!!

  4. These people might need one of those dog signs to deter any vigilante wreath hanging.
