Checking up on Dr. Toothy

Since last August, we've watched the construction slowly proceed at Mott and Worth in Chinatown. The A & B Lobster King House at 1 Mott Street closed, and the one-story extention was demolished.



And so construction began on a new structure across the way from Chatham Square...






...the only question was whether the new structure would cover the beloved Dr. Toothy mural. (Actually, I do like this mural...something so out of place about it...) However, from the looks of the photos below that were taken this past Friday, it appears the Dr. Toothy has been spared.

I'm surprised that Dr. Toothy hasn't received legal mail from Disney, as once did the Snoopy Deli, which quickly became the Noopy Deli, then the Di and Dodi Deli!

Ah, good point, BaHa! Perhaps they were formerly known as Dr. Goofy?
