    Is there anyone that still passes this place regular (301 w 46th)?

    I was by there fairly recently. The parking lot on 46th is back in full swing, loaded up with vehicles. The lot at 741 Eighth where the building came down last year has a carpet of rubble and is enclosed by a fence.

    The only action at DOB for 301 W 46 / 733-739 Eighth is a renewal of a previous construction permit (Russo Wrecking) for interior work. The DEMO Permit has not yet been filed.

    Thanks for that. Then the building is still standing. Now, I just need to find someone that is passing it sometime with a camera...

    It still looks pretty much like it did here, a little over a year ago:

    Yes. I am looking for some specific photos though before it is flattened.
    I own a missing/unidentified persons website and am working the case of a body that was found interred in concrete in the basement in 2003.
    If anyone passes the place, it would be great if you could let me know.

    Hmmmm ... Whose body?

    Starting in 1965 this building at 301 West 46th was the location of "Steve Paul's The Scene" -- a very happening rock & roll club (aka a "groovy discotheque") ...





    It was one of Jimi Hendrix's favorite joints ...

    Woke Up This Morning and Found Myself Dead is a posthumous live album by Jimi Hendrix released in Canada 1980 by Stony Plain Recording Co. and in the USA by Red Lightnin' Records. The album documents Hendrix's jam session (which he recorded himself on his portable reel to reel machine that he had brought with him) at The Scene club, 301 West 46th Street, New York City in March 1968, with guest vocals from Jim Morrison (that consist almost entirely of drunkenly shouted obscenities).
    LISTEN to Jimi and Jim at The Scene



    The Doors played The Scene in the summer of 1967, as "Light My Fire" hit the top of the charts ...




    From oedipusphinx at Flickr

    The Scene is where Tiny Tim was discovered and where some scenes for the rockumentary "You Are What You Eat" were filmed (don't miss a chance to hear TT's classic version of "I've Got You Babe") ...



    Many others played there ...

    It's sad -- this one could be gem if re-used and incorporated into a new building ...

    Only in schmucky NY could this beautiful building be razed and replaced with this POS.
