  1. In Street View the sign on the 137th Street scaffolding says “construction of a new Parking Facility and EMS station will begin with the demolition of the Out Patient Department building.” If the scaffolded building is the one that’s doomed, it looks historic.

  2. Is this the old Harlem hospital than where is housing and preservation
    Should be a landmark if it is why is this happening.?

  3. I hope this will be usedfor residence. And will provide adequate housing with all the homeless on trains

  4. The city denied a zoning change request for the Lennox Terrace development just a block away.

    Will be interested to see how the 130’s in Central Harlem is transformed.
