    Walked by on 42nd street today and demolition work has definately begun. At least two buildings were substantially down and another had the front facade mostly removed. These are all short buildings. They should come down pretty fast.

    Sorry no pics.

    I can't wait. I hope this tower and the New York Times tower will start construction at the same time. That will be awesom!

    It looks like demolition started with Peep-O-Rama and is moving East and West from there. North side of the block and East side will likely be last.

    Maybe it was appropriate that Peep-O-Rama was the first structure to be demolished. A clear sign that Times Square is finally shedding its reuptation as a haven for drag queens, and for the better. I for one won't miss the red-light reputation that TS suffered until Giuliani changed the zoning laws.

    Question though, what kinds of businesses are planning to open in One Bryant Park's retail spaces?

    Think so. Not sure where it's moving, but there will be theater space in the new building when completed.

    It's the Henry Miller Theater and it will be rebuilt in the new building complex. As for Agglomeration's singling out of "drag queens" as the purveyors of Peep-O-Rama's services and wares as well as the source of the old Time Square sleaze (which some folks nostalgically miss) - I submit it that the most consistent customers of "red light bisinesses" were Long Island and Jersey commuters, followed by NYC visitors.

    Drag Queens can be found downtown, performing and entertaining and. it might surprise you, at the forefront of many civil rights movements. Crack-whore trannies and Drag Queens are different creatures all together.

    The very last selling hold-out, the Sprint Store is now unidentifiable.



    Mid-block 42nd Street. Everything west to the Conde Nast Building is the next to go.



    The big hole beckens. The pile of bricks is almost artistic.



    The building to the left is the next to go.



    Putting the massive overhaul in context.
