I roughly took a look at this land's information. it belongs to R3X
Zoning in Staten Island. R3X is for Single and Two Family Detached
Max Height is 35ft, Max Perimeter Wall is 21ft; Max FAR is 0.5; Front
Yard at least 10 ft, Rear Yard at leat 30ft. Side Yards at least 10ft
total, each at least 2ft wide;
Besides these requirements, also has to see driveway min depth, Front
Yard comparing to Adjacent Front Yard, distance between neighboring
house and so on.
So I think it is easier to enlarge that garage to be a single family
house and keep the original house instead of convert whole thing to be
attached 4 family houses

I appreciate your suggestion to keep this newsgroup away from spam.
Without volunteers like you, this group may become a place full of
garbage such as many other google groups.
But I dont think we should avoid memebers to post any construction
industry related topics. These are not spam but good questions. the
purpose for this newsgroup is to help people exchange knowledge and
I suggest the administrator publish a rule to let members know what
should post and what should not.
