An EVG tipster shared this photo from yesterday ... when workers erected the sidewalk bridge and started putting up the necessary equipment to demolish the existing three-level structure at 118 E. First St. between Avenue A and First Avenue.
As previously noted, the existing structure is being demolished to make room for a 9-story residential building. In total, there are seven units divided over 12,500 square feet of residential space, as NY Yimby first reported. (Given the size — about 1,800 square feet, NYY figures these will be condos.)
The building will include a small retail space on the ground floor.

Speaking of signs, though — this one appeared in a window here back in November...
