STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. (SI Advance) -- A Staten Island judge has up-ended a Todt Hill couple's bid to have a neighboring home lowered by several feet because it spoils their million-dollar view. 

State Supreme Court Justice Philip G. Minardo has ruled that a deed covenant limiting the height of a new abode on Whitlock Avenue to 280 feet above sea level wasn't passed on to current owner Noce Management Inc. and, therefore, is unenforceable. 

"The height limitation does not appear in the chain of title for the Whitlock Avenue property," wrote Minardo in a recent decision.
