NY state senator mum about sister’s creepy house across street

Neighbors say they’ve been creeped out for months by an apparent concrete and plaster “art installation” in the front yard of a Brooklyn row house owned by the sister of state Sen. Kevin Parker, who lives right across the street.

Since last December, the front yard to the two-story brick home on Avenue H in Flatlands has been an ever-evolving pile of construction of garbage, tree limbs and odd sculptures of painted plaster, cement and aluminum foil.

“It has nothing to do with Halloween,” one rattled neighbor told The Post. “For Halloween, it’s OK, but it’s been there much longer than that.”

“Maybe to them it’s art,” another neighbor guessed.

A half-dozen neighbors reached by The Post said they are wary of complaining, given the residents’ macabre decorating sense, which they variously described as “creepy,” “terrible,” “an eyesore” and “scary.”

“A lot of people are very, very afraid of that house — I mean, honestly, I walk on the other side of the street or I don’t go down there at all,” said one person who lives in the area — and who asked not to be named or even referred to by gender.

“At first it was black paint,” that resident said. “Then it was black paint and cardboard. Then it was black paint, cardboard and green neon flags.

“Things go up, and things go down. I don’t think anybody knows what to do.”

When The Post knocked on the door of the home, a man shouted from a second-floor window, “I don’t want no Halloween story!”

“Get off the property! You’re playing with your own self right now!”

The home, between East 37th Street and Brooklyn Avenue, belongs to Parker’s sister, Toni, and the senator lives across the street, according to public records.

Parker did not return calls to his office; no one responded to door knocks at his home on Thursday night and Friday.

No open complaints have been lodged against the house, according to online city Buildings Department records.

On Friday, a pair of bricks could be seen cemented onto the front walk from the sidewalk, past a makeshift gate constructed of foil and duct tape that extends across the first step toward to the house.

“I asked her what does it mean for her,” another neighbor said of a recent conversation she had with the apparent homeowner, who she said was sitting on the stoop.

“She said she was putting it up because it made her feel better — so maybe she is going through something,” that neighbor said.
