Save my Building
Organized by: Stacy Berkowitz
We have had this building since 1960. Our store front is on the bottom floor. We are family owned. We sell custom window treatments. We were part of the direct hit from Sandy. Down the hill from us reastaurants and stores were washed out to sea. Our building has structural damage. The whole front 3 course brick facade is falling down. We need to take down all of the brick, and reframe the building. First we must build walls inside the apartments so no one is exposed to the elements. We already have spent $30,000.00 of our own money to engineers and JCPL to move overhead wires so we can start work on repairing our building. Unfortunately our funds have diminished. Due to the effects of sandy our business has suffered. Then with the horrible winter we had it really put our family in a very bad financial position. We must keep this building because our 86 year old dad lives of of the tenants rent money. He can no longer take care of himself and has a full time care giver. We also run our business from this building. Any help you would be able to offer we be a tremendous burden from us. Thanking you in advance. May god bless you.
