Lot line Windows Jeapordized by construction next doorDec 20, 2007


We have a lot next door to our six story co-op that had been vacant for some 60 years, but now a new eight story building is going up. We obtained a copy of their plans and we see that they are building within 2 inches of our wall on the adjacent property line. This wall has a lot line of bedroom windows on it. The bedroom (corner apartment) also has two more windows on antoher wall with fire escape access.

Is there any legal precedent to protect our windows and make them redraw their plans?
