SAVE 84 2nd AVENUE’S ARCHITECTURAL INTEGRITY
As neighboring residents, we oppose the planned alterations to the rear of 84 Second Avenue, a City Landmarked building.
The proposed changes would:
1 - Alter the building’s footprint by tearing down the rear wall, extending the building 12 feet into the backyard and bricking over 5 windows.
2 - Allow for construction of a one story commercial extension to occupy the remainder of the backyard, with a full basement and a roof terrace.
3 - Alter the rear wall profile by adding two balconies and a roof terrace.
The building’s architectural integrity and the character of the property would be lost if this application is approved.
Its approval would permit drastic and irreversible changes to a 175-year-old property that has historically complemented the surrounding buildings and yards.
Neighbors only within the vicinity of 2nd Avenue & 5th Street and 2nd Avenue & 4th Street are invited to sign this petition. If signing YOUR ADDRESS MUST BE INCLUDED IN THE COMMENT FIELD.
