To the Committee of Adjustment
My wife and I live at 28 Ninth Street, just south, and right next
door to the property in question, I can’t beleive, the builder Nicola
Bosciano, is planning to build 2 separate houses on a 50ft. lot, We
strongly oppose granting the minor variance that has been requested.
We have lived here for 16 years and love our quaint neighborhood, to
put not one but two monster buildings right next door is ridiculous.
We have invested alot of money to improve our home, what will the new
construction do to my home? How close does one get? How much damage can
be caused ie: vibrations, etc.?
I am an artist working at home, this will definitely affect my
livelihood, my studio has 2 northern skylights, the proposed buildings
are 3 stories High, they will affect the light in my studio, not to
mention our beautiful backyard, The new proposed buildings will extend,
way into the backyard and tower over us. What will happen if I wanted
to build another floor on my house?
We want simply to keep the integrity of the neighborhood, and I
strongly oppose granting the minor variance, and realize the builder
only cares about one thing, and it’s not our neighborhood.
