Taking a stroll down memory lane to a not-so-distant past: Here is the BP gas station at the corner of Houston and Lafayette, taken in March 2016. Today if you walk on by, you'll be greeted by a huge dirt hole as construction begins on a multi-level luxury apartment complex. Fun times.
By the way, who remembers when this BP was a Gaseteria? Here are some photos of it prior to its name change thanks to the NYPL.
