566 Hancock Street's Seen Better Days

566-Hancock-Street-0209.jpg


This is a sad one. By last fall, the nine-unit building at 560 Hancock Street at Stuyvesant Avenue had been allowed to deteriorate to such a point that the Department of Buildings ordered that the building be vacated. Judging from a photo on Property Shark (which you can see on the jump), a handful of apartments were still occupied as recently as 2006, though the top floor appears gutted and windowless. What a shame—it's a beautiful building. It looks like HPD has stepped in to put up the scaffolding but shouldn't the landlord lose the building? This is a disgrace. GMAP P*Shark DOB
