The precision demolition at 76 Third Ave.

Just checking in on 74-76 Third Ave. ... seeing how the demolition is going... the former Yummy House is halfway down...



...and you can see the side of what was Nevada Smith's... and maybe some old wallpaper?


They'll need a new place for that parking sign. Not to mention a parking lot. An 82,000-square-foot, nine-story residential building is coming soon.

And how it looked on March 17...


Such a nice, precision demolition... so even... it's as if workers are taking out a brick at a time...

Demos used to be so much more dramatic... cinematic... as seen here in photos we posted awhile back from EV Grieve reader Steve Carter... when crews took down 19 Second Ave. in 1997...
