  1. Another charming old NY building bites the dust while that soul crushing 1980s pile next door is untouched.

  2. I’m assuming it will replaced by a 10-20 story much needed condo tower with units starting in the mid 2’s?

  3. so sad another 1926 low rise building being demolished for another glass cube
    Another piece of nyc history down the drain for GREED GREED

  4. also they’re going to kick out 36 formerly homeless people with mental disabilities for GREED GREED GREED

  5. Looks like it may have been designed by Henry J Hardenbergh. Several other of his smaller residential buildings still survive ( and are landmarked ) in the neighborhood.
