The former residence of photographer Jay Maisel at 190 Bowery has finally taken down the scaffolding. Amazingly, the exterior of the building is more or less intact. All the graffiti pre-scaffold is still there and with the exception of new windows, the outside looks mostly the same! I asked some of the guys working if there were plans to clean the facade of the building but they said there weren't any. I guess it's up to the first-floor tenant (whoever moves in) to make that decision.
Jay Maisel sold the property for $55 million in 2014. The building's official name is the Germania Bank Building.
