Racist graffiti rears its ugly head

Columbia Spy recently received reader-submitted photos taken at the rear of a property in the 300 block of Avenue H, showing a piece of plywood with a spray-painted racial slur and two boys allegedly trying to damage it. The plywood appears to block a building entrance. A source tells the Spy that the graffiti was previously reported to the borough code office.

The entire area at the rear of this building is in disrepair and is an eyesore, clearly visible to patrons exiting Burning Bridge Antiques' parking lot.

  4. Is this another CEDC owned building? Do they do a regular walk around every week to make sure their building is not being vandalized?

    1. No need to get a jab in at borough manager, at least he is trying. He is the only person that seems to get action when things need attention.

    1. I believe that this property is "closed down" in that it is condemned.

  7. Even when the codes department does address this type of situation, it takes time.
    The landlords and property ownets will just ignore things till the last SECOND.
    RAISE THE FINES SO THEY HURT THE POCKETBOOK!

  8. Get rid of abusing recipients of welfare to start, then attack the slum lords or landlords who actually have no idea their tenant is an abuser.
