Hi Kelly. Unfortunately, New York seems to be especially good at demolishing its past. As The Times wrote in its farewell to Penn Station, "We want and deserve tin-can architecture in a tinhorn culture. And we will probably be judged not by the monuments we build but by those we have destroyed." Thanks for your comment.

Hi, i loved the post even though its not nice to see history disappearing. It seems to be happening everywhere around the world. Even here in Ireland history is being ripped down to build new state of the art high rise apartments. Its great for you to highlight this problem.


The "progress" is especially noticeable—and intrusive—on the LES. Thanks for your comment, Mike.

I am saddened by the amount of New York history that keeps disappearing in the name of progress.
