I hope most of the ornamental elements make it to a salvage company and not a landfill. I am very curious to see the plans for this land, drawings and time table would be good to see.

Te East Village is the next Sodom and Gomorrah.

Don't look back or you'll turn into a pillar of salt. But then again the hipsters will rejoice in that notion and use those pillar of salt in their next trendy artisanal foodie food, in lieu of sea salt.

The Sodom and Gomorrah biscuits in pillar of salt made out of people (talk about artisanal) in Hoboken hoof , anyone?
