oh look away look away......
That is such a sad, generic look. Could be anytown.
oh my, shipping crates?
I've been avoiding this block, but walked along it the other day, from Bowery to 2nd Avenue. There's a Chase Bank at one end, an incoming TD Bank at the other, and Mall of America in between. There's absolutely nothing that indicates you're in NYC...not even Veselka could bring any personality to this swath of nothingness.
Remember the last day when we were all in there? Right before a Chillmaster party. Wow.
Yes - great memories!I took this weird video on the night of the closing. If you look quick at the 37 second mark, you can see Bob sitting on a flower pot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RWF_QcfB40
Just watched it! Thanks for posting this, it was great to see Bob in it!
I’ll take a bathroom filled with fruit flies over what sitsthere now.
Does 'wiped off the face of the earth', 'removed all semblance of', 'you'd never know what once stood here,' mean anything to you? Might as well be in Toronto.
Which is why, when they want to film a story set in NYC and don't need to show landmarks beyond a few establishing shots, they do it in T.O., and have done so for thirty or more years, because it's cheaper. You're being a bit Manhattancentric. T.O. looks like outer-borough NYC. If you're going to dump on T.O., dump on the outer boroughs too, while you're at it.
Memories of the Mars Bar is all. Is there anything else that's left?
I don't understand why new buildings need to look so ugly. Why can't they build in the style of the neighborhood? Do rich people really prefer that steel-and-glass look?
