Claim: No construction until next year at 35 Cooper Square; empty lot all ours for remainder of 2011

In case that you missed this Friday afternoon... Goggla told us that the boards and sidewalk shed were coming down at 35 Cooper Square.

And here's what the lot looks like now...



Also, a worker told her that new construction is not set to happen until next year.


Bonus photo! Leftover food.

This makes me so mad. They rushed to tear down the old building just to get rid of it and silence the preservationists.

I don't know what makes me sadder -looking at the empty space or the building when it was awaiting its doom. The developer just didn't want to be bothered with community opposition or take a chance it being landmarked.
