Rat-Squirrel House Raided!

The Rat-Squirrel House, Cobble Hill's most broken-down and neglected landmark (it's nicknamed the Rat-Squirrel House, after all), was raided by authorities this week. Lost City writes: "Inside they found a squatter and mounds upon mounds of garbage. Whether the garbage was accumulated by the squatter or by longtime owner Arlene Karlsen—who lives in the crazy, crumbling structure until recently—is unclear." The DOB cited the Kane Street building for numerous new problems, and workers have re-sealed the door. [Lost City; previously]
