I'm signing this petition because my neighbor is renting out rooms like a hotels. So many individuals walking in and out of this residence. It is unsafe, will be a fire hazard for my entire block. Also the constant chain smoking person sitting outside killing his lungs. The smoke always blows into my house. I have decided to leave the windows closed. The last straw that broke the camels back was their tenant has two dogs urinating on my side of the property.

I live in Bensonhurst Brooklyn and this is going on all around me. Homes are no longer being purchased for family use. They are strictly investment properties that are illegally converted to SRO and multiple family homes.

The structure and architectural design of a neighborhood should be maintained. The effects of changing this can compromise the sewers, parking, schools, and traffic converting a residential neighborhood into a congested space.

Too many home are being converted to 5 and more families. 8019-6th Ave. is one of them. Even the garage was converted to an apartment.
