Meals on Wheels of Staten Island will be getting a new home, thanks to Tuesday’s approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The beloved organization has outgrown its home in Richmond County and the city found it a site at the former Seaview Hospital tuberculosis treatment campus, which sits in the New York City Farm Colony – Seaview Hospital Historic District. The address is listed as 460 Brielle Avenue. In July, a presentation was made to the commission, but it was found to be too industrial for the setting. The revised design easily won over the commissioners.
SI Northshore Enterprises has filed applications for two two-story, single-family homes on the block-through lot at 226-228 Gansevoort Boulevard, in Manor Heights, located centrally on Staten Island.
