Tuesday, June 16, 2015. New York City – “Juan and Rosemarie are longtime Brooklyn residents fighting for their home. 468 Chestnut Street, the single family house in East New York they have owned for since 2004, is currently uninhabitable due to storm and other damage, and now the HPD is threatening to tear the building down unless they can completely rehabilitate it by June.” Taken from the GoFundMe page: http://www.gofundme.com/juanvega
“Juan and Rosemarie need to raise 200,000 dollars in order to pay for contractors, plumbers, structural engineers, and building materials, as well as fees to the City Department of Buildings. If they are unable to pay, the City will not only demolish their home, it will charge them heavily for the demolition. Juan and Rosemarie will lose everything, and the land will go to the City, which will likely sell to luxury developers.
Please give as much as you can, and spread the word! Help keep Juan and Rosemarie in their home.” Taken from the GoFundMe page: http://www.gofundme.com/juanvega
