  1. Thank You So Much Jay for your interest and help with the LAMBERTI
    building. It seems no one cares about this issue. If you do not live nearby,
    you still should. This can happen anywhere in Margate. Remember, money talks.
    This was an inside deal made for an advantage on both sides. Typical politics.

    1. Maybe find out who insures this site and confirm all insurance is in order. Empty construction sites for extended period of time can be a concern for insurers. Does the City of Margate still have liability there. Part of that building is built on a Margate City Sidewalk, which I assume, still belongs to the city and the people of Margate. If you look at it carefully where the sidewalk should be you will see what I refer to.
