    Oh no, I’ve been to this business. It’s a shame to lose a local hardware/lumber store. Progress can be bittersweet.

  2. Don’t cry for this guy.
    Research Robert Gans.

  3. 173 square feet for commercial space…? what can be there for 173 sqft

  4. It’s not a short walk. It’s three very long avenue blocks, then down three.

  5. Wait this is confusing. The photo is from the odd side of the street something like 617 11th Ave with the hardware store. 622 would be on the other side with the lumber storage area. Both are Metropolitan Lumber & Hardware

      You’re correct! The photo included with this article is the other (west) side of 11th Avenue – NOT the site now scheduled for redevelopment, which is on the EAST side of 11th Avenue (Think: The Landmark Tavern, which fortunately is NOT being torn down for this likely pedestrian apartment building).

      Another reply, which includes a clickable link to an article by W42nd St. with the correct photos of the site scheduled for redevelopment and additional details about the site’s history and upcoming redevelopment was uploaded already but is awaiting approval by the web site admin as I includes the clickable url.

      Hopefully, that reply will be cleared to appear in a timely fashion! 😉

    “…as it includes the the clickable url.” in the above.

    Apologies for the editing error!
