This happened earlier last week but the garage that used to reside in the lot across the street from my apartment has been completely dismantled. What a way to go. Closed down and almost immediately torn down level by level until only this dirt patch remains.
For as long as I could remember this garage and the adjacent wholesale stores (once a deli) were here and now the city is making way for a high-rise hotel. I'm gonna lose that amazing view of the Empire State Building. :(
