Permits filed to demolish former 2nd Avenue BP station
The orders were put in yesterday to take down the station here on Second Avenue at East First Street. (So enjoy the graffiti while you can! And be mindful as workers remove the asbestos!)
What's next? The Deal Deal reported last month that a new development with 50,000 square feet of condominiums and 7,000 square feet of retail is on the way.
However, permits for a new building are not on file yet with the Department of Buildings.
BP, the neighborhood's second-to-last gas station, closed in early July.
