Crack is Wack for Slope Building


The DOB has cordoned off the vacant building at 647 Baltic Street in Park Slope with its scary yellow tape and the official line on the structure, via a spokesperson, is that it "prevents a significant safety risk" but it's "not in imminent danger of collapse." The building's owner, who, according to neighbors, hasn't been seen for a couple years, has been served with a bunch of violations. One of the more recent ones says the following: "Failure to maintain observed: front brick facade pulling away from side wall with vertical crack app. 20' high with gaps from 3/8" to 1 1/2"." The DOB says they're evaluating their options for the building, which may very well include demolition. GMAP DOB
