    That's the phrase I used forever. Until WNY, anyway.

    That sucks. Those old buildings could have had their cornices and other details restored. I wonder what's going to be built there. I hope not a POS.

    Compare to the photos on post #43. The interior is being gutted; the outer walls remain. The vacant lot was already there.

    Thanks, Zippy. This is good news. Hopefully, they will restore the cornice.

    Are you clairvoyant? Able to see what's going on up here from way down south?

    In answer to your dreams, this has just gone in at Chelsea Market -- new yellow neon signage

    Looks fine, but why yellow?



    Btw are new flashing or animated neon signs allowed anymore outside of Times Square?

    I wish that more developers were as interested in creating something that actually does the city some good. It seems that a well-restored brick/stone building should be able to draw better tenants and a higher-spending crowd than the alucobond-and-glass tripe we get everywhere. I keep hoping that the Garment District, Flower District, Midtown and various areas downtown will understand that they can draw more visitors/shoppers by restoring the beautiful old stock that makes those areas worth going to. ... And yet, they keep tearing down the beautiful to replace it with its antithesis and nemesis, the Kaufman.

    This restored building will soon be home to Sephora.
