Not too long ago, we received a cry for help from Lefferts Avenue Resident. Via email, LAR told us that, much to her dismay, a neighbor across the street demolished their historic stoop, which may end up lessening the block's historic appeal and aesthetic.
Based on the appearance of the now destroyed stoop, it's tough for us to tell what the owners have planned for the entryway. It looks like the door below the stoop was already there - residents would have entered from the side. It's possible that they plan to rebuild according to original specs, but only time will tell.
Does LAR have any recourse? Can DOB intervene (no permits posted)? Or Landmarks?
