THE ZONING Board of Adjustment shot down a proposal yesterday for a controversial project in Point Breeze by developer Ori Feibush, whose lawyer previously threatened to sue a woman who had spoken out against the development.
The decision comes two weeks after residents packed a ZBA hearing to oppose Feibush's plan to build four large single-family, three-story houses on 20th Street near Annin, including one for himself. The area is zoned for three houses.
Annin Street resident Haley Dervinis was thrilled the ZBA voted against the plan. Dervinis testified against the project a day after receiving a letter from Feibush's attorney threatening to sue her for libel and slander for what he said were "defamatory" comments she made on blogs.
