no

 there

  all the buildings
 along Broadway 
between 76th-77th Street
 are being torn down 

I guess
 there will be
 a high rise 
apartment building
 going  up
 in place 
of the
 3 story commercial buildings
 that were there

  2. I hate to hear about old buildings being torn down, for some reason it pains me. Thanks for capturing them for posterity.

  3. The grand architectural details will be lost forever to a stark building of glass and concrete...so sad

  4. It's such a shame when beautiful old buildings have to go. Do you have 'listed' buildings over there like we do here, where old buildings are protected by law?

  6. It is sad but some old buildings need replacing - a lot of changes happening downtown too.
    Good capture for the record though!

  7. It is quite sad to see historic buildings go away. At least however in NYC there are still so many amazing places there from 100 years ago. I think the city does a pretty good job of restoring places, more than my hometown. Love the photo, very cool. Have a fab Sunday!!

  10. This looks so much cooler than a modern high rise!
    Love the angle of this shot, and the color.

  12. I'm dying to know what's behind that red window covering. Oh, since it's no longer there, I guess I'll never know!

  13. So much character in this old building, but clearly it was needing sacffolding for structural support! That is not good! With all the modern technology, you would would think it could be restored! Lovely "antiqued" tones in your photo!
