Starting the Second Week of Demo at 207 Wyckoff
Its been one week since 207 Wyckoff St. in Boerum Hill began falling onto itself and its neighbors. Since then, the demolition crew has made some amazing progress bringing almost one-half of the front facade down. They are bringing it down brick-by-brick, to prevent any further accidents.
Moreover, Sail Brooklyn has heard from David Yassky's office regarding this building which has been a menace to Mr. Yassky's constituents for years. According to Yassky's office, the buildings department said that if the owner of 207 Wyckoff did surface and went to court to stop the demolition, given the amount and frequency of violations at 207 Wyckoff, they estimate that the most time they could see the judge giving the owner was 30 days. Our contact at Mr. Yassky's office said they believed if this was the case, a judge would most likely ask that the building come down in two weeks and if the owner did not comply, the judge would reinstate the demolition order for the city to do the work. We're also pleased to year that Mr. Yassky has personally gotten involved in the issue of 207 Wyckoff. He is sending a letter to the DoB Commissioner recounting the story fo 207 Wyckoff and citing the failure of the DoB to act and calling for the DoB to press charges against the owner independent of the fines.
