One of the sites previously housed a MdDonald's. The new owner plans to demolish the buildings and construct a 40-story residential tower.

    That looks like a group of old buildings. Any street shots?

    They are older buildings, some of which are pretty attractive and others I could do without.

    A preliminary view from ESB (to the left of the ugly apartment building across the street from Flatiron):

    Hm, some of those buildings are indeed nice, from what I remember. And this tower looks set to have an all too girthy base...

    The article says 2 two-story buildings. One of them is obviously the one in black, but where's the other? The adjacent buildings are all higher than 2 stories.

    There's a McDonald's on that row- right across from Shake Shack. You can bring your Combo Meal over to the park and tempt the people waiting an hour in line to spend $20 on a made-to-order burger...

    The little black building and the nice grey one next to it will be razed. While the black one will be no loss, it will be a shame to lose the grey one, as there are several dilapidated buildings to the west of the black one including one housing a Wendy's.

    Hmm yeah, would have been better to kill Dunkin Donuts.

    You know I hate to destroy buildings just because the retail sucks, but this might be one of the cases where a new building would be better to change the negative street vibe that exists now on this part of 23rd. I don't know what it is, but the retail adds to the whole West 42nd street in the 1970s feel ...

    I think the developers are Glenwood Management. Expect something hideous like all the rest of their buildings.

    There are seven buildings in that view. The overhead shot in the first post shows that there are eight buildings currently occupying the site. The second two-story building might be the building that's out-of-view.

    The article refers to 20-22 E. 23rd St. I walked by the site last week when I read this, and the buildings are the little black one and the grey one to the left of it.
