Readers Write: Share your voice on proposed Manorhaven building on 11/13


The location has changed for the upcoming Manorhaven Board of Zoning Appeals public hearing on the proposed Dejana Apartment building on Manhasset Isle.

Now, according to the Clerks Desk on, the hearing will be held at the Port Jewish Center at 20 Manorhaven Blvd. (across from Village Hall — not at the Knights of Columbus Hall) on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 6:30 p.m.

Peter Dejana has also changed the shape of this requested apartment building. Now he is asking for a single much fatter building, instead of the previous two four-story structures.

It would still hold 18 apartments and asks to eliminate 50 required parking spots.  The height has dropped down to 45 feet tall (3 stories high) in a 26 foot zone.

The public is urged to show up and speak out against this flagrant manipulation of our zoning code, which will set a precedent for future building in the Village of Manorhaven.
