After years of struggle, the development site at 614 7th Avenue that caught media attention for its potential to block the views from the Minerva statue in nearby Green-Wood Heights Cemetery to the Statue of Liberty finally ended up with a design that both DOB and the community could live withâ€”eleven 14-foot-wide townhouses. Though not completed yet, they’ve been on the market since January, now for $999,000. A tipster walked by last week and was not particularly impressed: Along with this photo of the townhouse at the corner of 23rd Street and 7th Avenue, here’s what he had to say. “No rebar in this wall, many holes cut, many filled in and now, wacky windows.” Update: In the name of fair and balanced coverage, we’ve posted a photo below from Denton of the front of this development.
