Court ordered owners to secure property from demolition by neglect, authorized Landmarks to take necessary steps if owners fail to comply. The Manee-Seguine Homestead, at 509 Seguine Avenue in Staten Island, was designated an individual City landmark in 1984. The house is one of the few surviving buildings in the Borough and City likely to have been constructed before 1700, with an extension built to the original one-room house in the 18th Century. In September of 2008, Buildings issued an emergency declaration authorizing demolition of the building as unsafe. Landmarks intervened, and the declaration was amended to require that the house be sealed and a perimeter fence installed. In September 2009, Seguine Bay Estates LLC acquired the property.
