  1. What a shame. Not a great building now but a totally unique one the likes of which we will never see again. To be replaced by a generic bug box. Every day New York’s charm score goes down another notch.

    This is such a tragedy. T.F. Cusanelli and Filletti Architects are pathetic architects that offer nothing of any aesthetic value to the landscape of our neighborhood. Their designs are ugly, cheap-looking, and future generations will find them repugnant. New York City continues to look less and less unique because of untalented money-grubbing architects like these guys.

    Bell Reality should be ashamed of themselves for tearing down this interesting building (the only one left within blocks) to build another monstrosity.
