Continuing Saga at 207 Wyckoff St
We are continuing to follow the activities at 207 Wyckoff Street in Boerum Hill.
As of this posting, the demo crew has taken the facade off the top floor of the crumbling tenement. They are demolishing the building brick-by-brick in order to prevent any further damage to any of the surrounding buildings. We're told that the demolition will take 10 days.
The townhouse at 209 Wyckoff, which abuts the tenement, has been declared unsafe and illegal to enter. We're not sure where the owner is residing, but we know that the renters (a recently engaged couple) of the top-floor apartment have found temporary shelter in the neighborhood.
Insurance companies have been called and we're told that the two cars that were destroyed by a partial wall collapse of 207 Wyckoff have been declared totaled.
We'd also like to note that numerous calls and e-mail messages have been made to City Council Member David Yassky, who has not returned one. We're assuming that he's too busy trying to move up the political ladder to take care of his constituents.
