119 Abbey Court is one of those homes that seems like it has been perpetually under construction. Recently it was hit with a full stop work order for awnings installed up to the street line.
For at least the the last seven years the property has been in a state of flux. Many moons ago there were pictures posted under the Gerritsen Memories messsage board, which have seemed to have disappeared now, however it showed a frame of a tremendous home built completly out of steel beams. Back then it drew the ire of residents calling it out of character. The frame literally sat there rusting for a few years under blue tarps, until the construction picked back up.
A few years later came the stucco and lots of it! The frame was finally able to look like a house. It looked pretty decent, but anything looked better than a steel frame.
Last month, the owner listed as “EVSEEF, EALJAHU”, decided to put up awnings but built them to the street line. As soon as they did that – DOB hit them with a Full Stop Work Order. Which has remained on the property.
The whole thing reminds us of Seasme Street skit “One of these things”
