Bed-Stuy Residents Are Calling for Accountability Around Dangler Mansion

Bed-Stuy community members have compiled a list of demands following the demolishment of The Jacob Dangler Mansion, reports Carib News.

The list is directed towards the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC), the New York City Department of Buildings, the Mayor’s Office, and developer Tomer Erlich.

Despite repeated community organizing since July, no one protected Bed-Stuy residents from reckless demolition of the community landmark. Workers demolished the mansion without proper permits and smoke and debris plagued surrounding blocks for weeks. And throughout the process, developer Tomer Erlich accrued over $106,500 in fines, 13 citations, and 89 complaints with no consequence to his proposed 7-story high rise building.
