One of Manhattan's most recognizable gas stations, the former Gaseteria at Houston and Lafayette (now labeled with BP), is closing at the end of this month. The BP gas station has a long history of occupying that corner of coveted real estate (since the 1930s!) and its closure will follow the closure of the adjacent Puck Fair.
When all the buildings there close, what will take its place is a 80,000 square foot offie building designed by COOKFOX. Here are some photos I snapped of the place before it disappeared completely.
