Activists lament mounting development in S. Village
By Alan Krawitz The yellow tenement at 9 Minetta Street, with a dubious history of suspected illegal hotel use, located within the proposed South Village Historic District, is on track for conversion from a 20-unit building to a 5,000 square foot, one-family mansion, according to information from the city's Department of Buildings.
The likely conversion of the 1883-built structure from tenement to mansion has preservationists and housing activists alike concerned.
