Yes, that’s the Marini house, and right across the street, that brick house, was Wheeler’s. The guy completely destroyed his view. And it seems a little dodgy that Marini was given a permit to build a mansion in what is a very small park with what appears to be a nice little public beach.
Probably helps to be the nephew of a powerful trucking/ contracting magnate *wink* *wink*.
This story is going to take on a life of it’s own. It’s got me hooked already. This has got organized crime written all over it. Looks like the f*cked with the wrong guy though, as this has gone national.
This matches pretty well with the Google Maps view I posted. I think this is a view from South St. looking from behind the house towards the west. The shape of the house matches the foundation visible in Google Maps, and I think you can see that pine tree in street view if you move east on 3rd St and look back towards South St. Again, the construction hadn’t started yet in the street view scenes, but you can see the high berm along South St. at the house site.
