It's a lot of building to knock down, but a milestone of sorts was reached late last week at Building 213
when the demolition punched through from the west to the east, splitting the remnants in two and giving a peek at the vistas to come once it all comes tumbling down.
In addition, I've scoured the archives and have come up with more than more than 40 vantage points
where Spooky Central has been visible from and will be for just a bit longer.
But if you want a few more moments of the building not looking torn apart, go stand about halfway between M and N on first and look eastward above the "Event Parking" sign, as I did above. (I didn't even notice this quirk until I got home and looked at the photo.)
A few blocks away another man-made creation that won't be much lamented is being dismantled, as seen here in its before-and-after, with the Park Chelsea
Then there's some signage I have needed to officially record, that of the Subway Café and the Big Stick at 20 M
(which got its tenant layout building permit approved recently), and the new Homewood Suites banner at 50 M.
Plus there's now a tower crane at the Hampton Inn site
To bring some green to the page, I'll close with this lovely photo of the increasingly lush Monument Valley
just north of the ballpark.
And I'll have an even more interesting batch of photos coming soon.
