Neighbor Beefs

The neighbors of that UWS millionaire who wants to build a three-story pool deck on the back of his brownstone really should have listened to our idea about baking apricot crisp for the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Yesterday the LPC approved Mavi Jeans founder Ragip Ersin Akarlilar's proposal for a glass and steel deck though decreed that he "shrink the deck to two stories instead of three, and shave 10 feet off the mechanical building" to preserve the yard's green space. The next-door neighbor is not exactly placated; he's hiring a lawyer to fight the construction and is "not intending on allowing them to ruin my life without a big fight." [DNAInfo; previously]
