Demolition for 128 Hester
All the drama surrounding 128 Hester Street, its questionable landlord and subsequent evacuation, has finally come to a head. DOB demolition permits were secured late last month, and the work has begun. The centuries-old tenement building between Bowery and Chrystie Street is being dismantled as we speak. Hidden behind the ominous black netting is a garbage chute which spits out the debris at street level. Caution tape secures the immediate vicinity out front in an attempt to minimize any danger. All this because of the Wyndham Garden Hotel under construction at 91 Bowery.
