Breaking: Workers remove the plywood and sidewalk shed at 35 Cooper Square

The boards and sidewalk shed are are down at 35 Cooper Square. Thanks to Goggla for the photo and intel. Per Goggla: "Behold the beautiful whitewashed vacant lot at 35 Cooper Square."

She notes that a friendly worker told her that new construction is not set to happen until next year.

Meanwhile, a shot that I took two nights ago... see how that historic building has just faded into the ugly hotel now...

Man, that hotel IS ugly, not to mention out of place.

I can't wait until they open the new Tampon Hut at this location.

Reminds me of that movie where James Russo beat the shit out of Madonna for two hours:

"Is that where god is the medicine chest? There's nothing in there but tampons and aspirin and that's the closest thing you're going to get to comfort in this life baby."

As you were.

Any inside word on precisely what new visual abomination will fill this void next year?
