Demolishing 100 Avenue A
We noticed a few workers on top of 98-100 Avenue A on Friday… they were jackhammering away...
And a rooftop view...

The former movie theater/grocery is coming down to make way for Ben Shaoul's retail-residential complex here between East Sixth Street and East Seventh Street. The rendering posted on the plywood shows a new building looking like this...
A retail listing that we posted in May stated that the building will contain 40 residential units.
Also on the plywood outside 98-100 Avenue A…

Any guesses on what they're trying to accomplish with this demolition before the start of snowfall and true Winter? The roof is now torn open; will they be able to completely demolish this before the new year / terrible weather?
Another visual desecration of our neighborhood. Talk about urban blight.
it breaks my heart
