The demolition gets serious on East 14th Street

Last Monday, workers began taking apart the single-level buildings on East 14th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B.

The crew has moved on from hand tools now, as the above photo by James and Karla Murray shows. (This looks to be the former ABC Animal Hospital.)

Workers are making room for two, 7-floor retail-residential buildings featuring 150 residential units.

Also, as EVG Facebook friend Michael Paul noted, Monday marked the 4-year anniversary of the fire on East 14th Street and Avenue A that wiped out Stuyvesant Grocery, Pete's-a-Place, Jackson Hewitt and the beauty shop ... an event that perhaps set this whole development in motion?
