Quaint House in Rego Park to be Demolished, McMansion Likely to Follow

64-53 Ellwell Crescent (Google) Slated to be Demolished

July 30, 2018 By Christian Murray

A standard-sized house on a standard-sized Rego Park street is going to be demolished.

A demolition permit was filed for 64-53 Ellwell Crescent on July 27, about two weeks after the home was bought for $1.4 million.

The owner is listed as NLA Realty, with Nikadam Aylyarova signing the paper work on behalf of the company. No building permits have been filed to replace the structure.

The house is located directly across the street from a new development, which features large Greek columns and a concrete yard.

Another house is being developed next to it.

Why is everyone so angry? Let these home owners do what they want. Not everyone is a criminal? I bought and rebuilt my house I saved many years for this. This just sounds like jealousy from Americans that lived here for generations and took hard working immigrants less than 20 years to figure this out! It’s too late if you don’t like it leave sell your houses and cash out. I hear Idaho is a good place for washed up folk like you :).. PS I am buharian and plan on buying more homes and making them bigger 🖕🏼

The area DOESN’T need to be landmarked. You can’t have your cake and eat it too boys and girls. You vote for Democrats and support left wing “diversity” until an Asian Jew legally buys a piece of property next door to you and then it’s time to “landmark” homes so it remains the way you want it. Fun fact: you can’t support “diversity” and still have a neighborhood look the way you want it to, bozos. YOU created and still continue to further the cultural destruction of this county in which Queens is the absolute indicator of what is to come for large swaths of this country in years to come. I don’t want foreigners next door to me but if they are here and bought their property legally, why shouldn’t they build what they want on the property they legally bought?

I worked with my community and we created a new bylaw that sets reasonable limits on house size. The jobs haven’t gone away, the property values are still on the rise, and the good news is–you can’t build trophy homes in our town. I made a movie about it and now other communities are using it to galvanize support in their town!

One can build a more modern, larger home without it being ostentatious. Just because it is taller than surrounding homes, leaves little green space because it takes up most of the property, and includes electronic and architectural bells and whistles doesn’t give it class. These owners need to stop trying to impress others with new-found wealth.

You landmark them and you’ll get peanuts for the house when you sell it. They were built 80 years ago and they look older on the inside. The new homes bring more living space as needed these days and a look that is more modern. You want to live in a barn move outta here, its not the 1920’s. And by the way, to hate ….appreciate.

Yes, but you don’t have to build out of context junk. This is an eyesore and many times so large it blocks the sunlight for surrounding neighbors.

What makes this country so great is the fact that everyone can voice their opinions and improve the quality of their lives even if others are envious. These Neighborhoods are looking better.

I thought the City Council passed a law that you can’t concrete over your whole property due to the drainage problems, notwithstanding it looks ugly. Perhaps this new construction will heed to the law?

You may not like these mansion, but there are plenty of sellers and buyers who may have a different opinion. These people are just doing these:

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Another ugly Russian piece of dog poop structure that destroys what used to make Forest Hills/Rego Park area like the suburbs and not the city. They come here, build things that look like institutions, are higher than most office buildings and they bring the whole village to move in, get food stamps, SNAP, free medical and drive luxury cars with out of state plates. The CB has done nothing since they started moving here and destroying the area.

It isn’t just happening in Forest Hills/Rego Park area. It is going on through out Queens, even in eastern Queens in Glen Oaks. The city needs to review this. Although it isn’t Long Island, these neighborhoods are more suburban than urban, and these homes are out of place.

Well. You are somewhat correct. These people who build these atrocious houses in FH and RP speak Russian however they are as Russian as an Eskimo to a Texan. These are so called bukharian Jews from Uzbekistan. You are correct that they are abusing the system and turn ablovely street in autracios neighborhood.

First, let’s keep this civil. The area needs to be landmarked. Second, The Crescents were the McMansions of their day. It’s not like these are stunning architecturally or anything like that. But, the character of the neighborhood — taken as a whole — is something that landmarking can preserve and should be taken into consideration.

It’s way too late for landmarking ANYTHING in NYC. The damage has already been done to our neighborhoods.

When will we have a town meeting and address these hideous homes? Not only are they eye sore but the concrete is not sustainable development, the gates and cameras add a vicious paranoid vibe to the neighborhood and advertises a blatant mistrust for neighbors. It’s clear that the ex-soviet is more than comfortable with the amenities provided and opportunities available in Forest Hills, but when will they understand the diplomatic civil approach to neighbors and the idea of a neighborhood? The blue marble monstrosity and it’s cohorts must be questioned. This isn’t Brighton Beach, Great Neck….any other Soviet hovel breeding greed, illegal alien labor, filth both social and societal. As a long time member of Forest Hills it would be nice to see the homes stay level and the people continue to be friendly.
