Homeowners protest proposed demolition of historic home

BROOKLYN -

A group of homeowners in East Flatbush are protesting against the demolition of a historic home on their block.

As News 12 reported, the building at 486 East 28th St. was purchased by developer Solomon Feder, who is planning to demolish the historic home.

Dozens of neighbors and residents on the street came out with signs calling on Feder to at least meet with them to discuss their concerns.

Some of those concerns include the loss of the historic building, an increase in cars to the street leading to traffic and parking problems, and the concern that their quaint and quiet street will turn into a construction project as a new development is being built.

They say the developers' lack of interest in their quality of life can be seen by the trash in front of the condemned home, and they say any attempts made to contact the company have been unsuccessful. 

News 12 reached out to Solomon Feder regarding the situation but has not heard back.
