CARROLL GARDENS—Wylie Goodman had no idea, when she moved in to her dream home in Carroll Gardens, it was a termite ticking time bomb.
"Things were just flying out of the floor. I didn't know what they were," said Goodman, showing PIX11 News all the damage done to her first floor on Columbia street, all made out of wood.
She claims that three years ago, the city demolished a building next to her and she believed opened the door to termites. Goodman showed us the damage to her wooden floors and basement, where the critters were devouring her dream home. "We are probably talking about twenty-five thousand dollars worth of damage," Goodman estimates.
PIX 11 News contacted the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, a spokesperson confirms the H.P.D. will be building a concrete pad, where it adjoins her property to direct water away from the building and are also exploring her most recent request which is to either provide the same type of concrete pad on the other side.
"They say they are going to fix the wall and put in a sidewalk. Thank you. Thank you. You were extremely helpful," said Goodman. We will keep you posted on Goodman's termites troubles.
