Just like after a certain time, depending on quite a few variables, a certain piece of literature falls into public domain for anyone's use, in the same way a certain building designed and built becomes the property of the citizens of its immediate city it is situated in as well as the property of the world.
Thus, the property owner's wishes and whims or claims of hardship are totally inconsequential and immaterial. Just like you cannot desecrate a Picasso in a public location, same goes for a Collette in Scarsdale, or any other house built in Scarsdale that has stood there for 60 plus years...
It is time we valued our houses and our environment and took care of our buildings, our roads, our trees. Destruction, demolition and desecration does no one good.

Some inside pictures taken from the real estate listing currently available on line thru Zillow, Coldwell Banker, etc.
Here is the description from the real estate listing from Caldwell Banker:
About This Home
Why destroy, demolish this ?
A little sweat equity and you can repair/ upgrade this easily. Who can build a house now with this quality ? Often windows are old windows, like in the palaces in Europe. Don't get swayed by the real estate industry ( " professionals " ) wanting to sell what they have.
Hold on to what you have, it is priceless. Be patient. Good things often come to those who wait.
Contact me. Will be glad to help.
