Building blocks of the Bowery are now a field of ruins – piles of rubble, dust, and debris. The last of 185-191 Bowery came down over the weekend after a protracted demolition process that spanned over three years. There’s not much else to say about the matter. The Lower East Side is being force-fed another unneeded hotel in an already-heavily-trafficked zone. Thanks, CitizenM.
Meanwhile, the sun now has free reign, or at least until groundbreak and construction. That’s some extra morning light for artist Jay Maisel in the Germania Bank Building.
