Activity at the long-empty 204 Avenue A
Residents yesterday spotted a Davey Drill taking (presumably) core samples from outside 204 Avenue A, the bricked-up building here between 12th Street and 13th Street.
According to public records, the NYC Housing Preservation and Development owns the property. There's nothing on file at the DOB to suggest any future development just yet. (There is a recent filing for "facade repair" at an estimated cost of $4,450.)
No. 204 has been vacant since at least 2009.
A look at Google Street View shows the building in use in September 2007...
By 2009 the place had been boarded up.
