After making history by forcing a developer it to raze an illegally built house, the saga surrounding the remaining two houses at 3177 Glennon Place and 3174 Hatting Place continues in Locust Point.
Residents are fuming over the condition of 3177 Glennon Place, a now abandoned, half-complete property with a weed-strewn lot, a broken fence and windowpanes.
The story began in 2005 when the builders of the homes, GDY Properties of Valley Stream, NY, flouted newly passed contextual zoning guidelines in Throggs Neck and laid foundations for three detached homes after down-zoning regulations had passed that prohibited such density. The property was only large enough to support two structures.
The homes included the two properties that are at the site, as well as 80 Longstreet Avenue, which became the first home in the history of NYC to be torn down because of a zoning violation.
