Bad news and … great news! Your rich Aunt Rose just passed away, but she has left you a 3,000 square foot vacant lot in Brooklyn! The property is transferred over to you (along with the real estate taxes), and you hire an architect to determine what building you can construct to maximize the potential of this incredible stroke of fortune. You hear back from the architect, and she lets you know that there is nothing you can build on the site, or at least nothing of value. What? How? Why? WTF am I going to do?

Let’s start with the how and why, then we will get to the what to do.
