Demolition for Sandy Damaged Homes


    DNAinfo reports that the city will begin demolishing homes in Queens and Staten Island damaged by Sandy, although the city has not yet disclosed addresses for the homes in question. These are structures–a few dozen in total–that the Department of Buildings deemed a safety hazard and in danger of collapse. The city has started talking with building owners and in certain cases they are already making preparations for demo. According to DNAinfo, “Homeowners would still be eligible for assistance in rebuilding or relocating with the NYC Build it Back program if the city demolished their homes.”
