Lindenhurst demolishes dilapidated house

A longtime eyesore in Lindenhurst Village was demolished on April 17, 2014, after more than a decade of legal wrangling between officials and the homeowner. According to court papers filed by the village, the property -- which sits on a creek leading to the Great South Bay -- has dozens of code violations. (Credit Ed Betz)
