Workers are now demolishing the last 2 East Village gas stations

Demolition work has started at the former BP station on Second Avenue at East First Street.

The Deal Deal reported back in the fall 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 closed in early July.

And there's no word on what became of the little tree in the original Exxon-branded planter.


Meanwhile, over at East Houston and Avenue C, EVG reader Magic Brian notes that demolition crews arrived late last week at the site of the former Mobil, which was the neighborhood's last gas station.

There are plans in the works for a 10-floor building (featuring 0 affordable units) with ground floor retail here.

Can't wait for the BP station on Houston to close too. The sidewalk will be back in use for pedestrians ( aka human beings) and the bike lane will be free to use

expenses. But he's tryiong none the less.
I've been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year

Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
