Looking at 128 E. 13th St.

Been some time since we looked at 128 E. 13th St. between Fourth Avenue and Third Avenue. The historic 1903 carriage house that belonged to Frank Stella was designated for demolition to make room for -- a seven-story condo. This is believed to be the last surviving horse and carriage auction mart building in New York City, according to the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation (GVSHP).

Long story, of course! The building was saved in spring of 2007. And it will be home to the Peridance Center, who signed a long-term lease for use of the building as a dance studio.

Anyway, that was more than two years ago... While a new sign is up, there looks to be a lot of work left...

You can read more about it here on the GVSHP site.
