Letter: A Neighborhood Eyesore That Should Be Condemned

There is a house two doors down from mine on Division Avenue in Massapequa that has seemingly been abandoned for at least two years.  The house has been boarded up but is covered with mold and mildew due to wind driven rainstorms and because for the most part, has been left unattended for years.

This house is a neighborhood eyesore and should be demolished, razed and ultimately torn down since I believe it could become a hangout for drug addicts and one look will tell you it has become a health hazard.  I don’t know if it is the county or the Town of Oyster Bay’s responsibility but it should be looked into and the sooner the better.
