After getting tag-teamed by the Department of Buildings and the Landmarks Preservation Commission, the owner of 364 Henry Street will finally be forced to make repairs that address both the safety and aesthetics of the dilapidated townhouse. A lawsuit brought by the two groups led to an agreement in Brooklyn Supreme Court last Friday, reports the Daily News. Under the agreement, the house’s owner, concrete kingpin John Quadrozzi, has ten weeks to repair the cracked walls of the house, and another six months for more cosmetic repairs; if he misses his deadlines, he faces fines up $1,000 a day. “[Buildings Department] engineers found that the owner’s repeated failure to maintain these buildings created a hazard to the public and an eyesore for the neighborhood,” said Buildings Commissioner Robert LiMandri in a statement.
