August 1st, 2017 2:16 PM
When I was younger I often heard the term "The Bronx Is Burning" and in a literal sense it was.  During the 70s homes, buildings, apartments were burned with the Fire House on Intervale Avenue rated one of the busiest in the City of New York second to Bedford Stuyvesant, Crown Heights, East New York.  In fact several books were written on the characteristics of "The Bronx is Burning"

Well today I say "The Bronx Is Again Burning" as is again Bedford Stuyvesant, Crown Height, East New York, The South Bronx, East Harlem, and every point north to south and east to west of The former farmland known to many as "DA BRONX"

Yes the Bronx is Burning alright with building-building-building home owner renovations and upscale development sites.

Once again, "Da Bronx" is becoming the frontier that money investors from Manhattan, Westchester, Brooklyn, Queens and foreign investment money from Asian, Middle Eastern and European have elected to park their money.

With recent reports of property value increasing by as much as 20% from last year its no wonder why a couple say from Bensonhurst Brooklyn would elect to purchase a 6 room over 6 room semi attached home in Morris Park for $650,000 as opposed to buying that same home in Bensonhurst for $1.3 million or Forrest Hills for $1.7 million or in Flushing for $1.5 million.  Thus the rush to buy home in "Da Bronx"

Therefore to the skeptics that believe the homes in the Bronx have not increased in value I say to you as an Appraiser and as a Realtor, the homes in "Da Bronx" are under valued and as of this writing the values continue to spiral upward.

My conclusion to this story is simple.  If you are thinking of selling, DO NOT UNDERVALUE YOUR OWN HOME.   Get an appraisal and make yourself the investor not some "flipper" looking to pay you 50 cents on the dollar.  If you plan to sell GET EDUCATED and research the market.  The Bronx is a GOLD MINE and the best part you don't have to dig or pan water.

GOOD LUCK

There is no doubt that there are well intentioned members of the Congregation of Powerhouse Church of St. Luke Church of Christ located at 1812 Paulding Avenue, Bronx, New York.

I have personally witnessed members of the Church hand out school bags and supplied to members of the Morris Park Community.  Clearly, there should be no Church that interferes with the QUALITY OF LIFE of the Congregation it serves, and more importantly to those of the community the Church is located.

It is with great dismay that I feel compelled to have to post this on my blog.  However, as a Tax Payer, A property owner, an Investor as well as a Private Protector of this Community as a Retired Law Enforcement Officer it seems I have very little choice but to expose the apparent wrong doings of those who are believed to preach righteousness.

On September 4, at approximately 9:00 pm to approximately 9:50 pm there were 4 double parked vehicles parked in front of and Proximate to 1812 Paulding Avenue, the location of this Church.  The following are the License Plate numbers:

EWY 8160-NY
C58-DLM- NJ
ETJ 8016- NY
601587 (NYS Handicap Plate)

Each and everyone of these Parking Violations violators possessed a "CLERGY" Parking Plaque on their dash board apparently making these so called Clergy Members if indeed Clergy or perhaps abusers of the good nature of the Pastor and in possession of bogus plaques.  That should be a decision for the members of the 49th Pct to determine or for Traffic Bureau of NYPD Agents to make.

Be the "Plaques" real or fake, in my opinion, here is the real problem from the point of view of Health and Safety.

First, the handicap plate has no right whatsoever to block the driveway which it was observed to block on 9/4, even as partial as it was.  The driveway that was blocked belongs to an elderly woman and no pun intended, GOD forbid she should have an emergency;

Secondly, in the event of a fire or any other emergency, those vehicles are traffic obstruction, impeding traffic flow, blocking vehicles owned by community members, and absolutely no one has any right to violate the property rights of anyone else.  Preventing anyone from having free movement of their vehicle by blocking them in via a double parked vehicle under the subterfuge that they are a member of the CLERGY is a SIN.

I will attempt tomorrow to speak with the Pastor of this Church in the morning to bring to his attention what members of his Congregation are doing.  Based upon my conversations with other members of the community, it appears that this is the third consecutive night this has been occurring.

I find it ironic that members and non members who live or come to Morris Park that commit the same traffic infraction during the day time practically receive an instant summons.  But yet, in the evening it seems that NYPD together with its Officers and Traffic Agents allow the Quality of Life of those who reside on the 1800 Block of Paulding Avenue to deteriorate.

How does this impact on property values?  Ask yourself, do you want to live on a block where in a real emergency a Fire Truck, EMS, or NYPD ESU response time is delayed by double parked cars OBSTRUCTING TRAFFIC FLOW.

Many of you may not know but I was born in East Harlem.  Back then when I was a kid, I used to accompany my Sisters and Brother to the original Patsy's Pizzeria where we would enjoy one of East Harlem's best made Pizzas.

Of course, due to progress and the advent of Mayor Wagner Housing Accommodations called "Projects" the homes that many Italians lived in from 2nd and Pleasant Avenues and East 116 Street to East 124 Street between 2nd and Pleasant Avenue were condemned, again, in the name of "progress" for the wrecking ball and new "projects"  and we were forced to vacate and move.  My Block was East 120 Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues.  That was 1954.

Roll forward to September 2, 2014, that's 60 years later, 8:00 PM at 980 Morris Park Avenue between Radcliff and Colden Avenues, and that is  where I reacquainted myself with "Patsy's" Pizzeria at the invitation of Mario, one of the owners and his business partners launched their maiden voyage within the Morris Park/Van Nest Community of "The Bronx"

Unable to resist the temptation of the thin, light crusted pizza, made in their State of the Art Brick Ovens, I ordered a slice, which, immediately upon first bite allowed me to savor the taste and texture which brought me back to East Harlem and the memories of 60 years ago.

My congratulations to the wait staff who managed to satisfy all of the requests of the invited guests and walk ins in attendance, the pizza men, those tending the refreshments and to the management and owners who launched this maiden voyage of Patsy's of Morris Park.

Richard Greco Real Estate, Richard Greco Appraisals, NY Metro Appraisal Group and Fairfield County Appraisal and Assessment Group wish Patsy's Pizzeria of Morris Park success and thank you for bringing something different to Morris Park that is sure to satisfy every patron that enters your establishment.

No doubt many are waiting for the Grand Opening of the New Patsy's Pizzeria.

Patsy's bring to the Morris Park Community over 70 years of Pizza making.  Patsy's roots originated in East Harlem, a former "Little Italy" in Manhattan settled by Italian Immigrants at the turn of the 20th century.

Richard Greco Real Estate wishes Patsy's Pizzeria good luck and success and WELCOME TO THE NEIGHORHOOD.

It is a shame to walk the streets and sidewalks of Morris Park and notice the waste left on the sidewalks and streets of our community.  by inconsiderate dog owners and walkers.  Clearly property rights, not to mention NYC Health and Sanitation Codes are being violated.

If you are a dog owner, pick up after your dog.  Better yet, curb your dog for IT'S THE LAW and stop creating a public nuisance.

It is a greater shame that those who violate the law have less of a brain than the dogs they walk.
