Neighbors can now remember what this East 10th Street townhouse looks like



The one at 110 E. 10th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue… the one that has been enveloped in scaffolding and a sidewalk bridge for what, four years? (We saw an application for a sidewalk bridge date to 2010.)

The Italianate townhouse, built in 1867, is getting a gut rehab … converting the building into two residences.

Meanwhile, 110's sister townhouse at 106 remains wrapped in its construction gear… the building is undergoing a similar gut renovation…



Some neighbors have long been annoyed by the never-ending site of the sidewalk bridges, stalled construction and temporary campers here…

Sometimes those things stay up for so long that you forget there was ever a time when they were not there.

What a beautiful block!

Which building are we talking about here? The beige 3-and-a-half-story one there was home to a friend of mine that the landlord was finally successful in getting out.

110 is the one with the gate and plywood for the front door. No one has lived there for several years
