Brooklyn Brownstones Falling Left and Right; Demolition Planned

You thought the market report stats for Brooklyn were bad? Turns out there are worse things happening over in that crazy borough than are dreamt of in Elliman's statistics. Brownstoner reports that the brownstones at 329 and 331 MacDonough Street in Bed Stuy got vacate orders from the DOB yesterday thanks to illegal construction work. An on-site DOB inspector said the buildings (now fenced in) would be torn down. It's the second incident this week, after a Lefferts place brownstone collapsed the other night, getting a spot on the DOB's demo calendar. It's a Brooklyn brownstone bloodbath!
