Up on Alameda Avenue lives a sad, lonely house. Inexplicably abandoned, it sits dark and forlorn, slowly decaying. This is not an uncommon site throughout Astoria. However, in a City that frequently bemoans its lack of affordable housing, why is there no partnership between City, County, college and/or other organizations to rehab these structures? If these homes are structurally unsound, why are they left to die a slow painful death? Perhaps we need an edifice euthanization commiittee? Humanity for houses!
