[Updated] Demo work starts on the southeast corner of 4th Avenue and 10th Street

As noted a few weeks back (first by DNAinfo), demolition permits are now on file to take down the long-empty, single-level building at 71 Fourth Ave. and the four-story, turn-of-the-century townhouse next door at 82 E. 10th St.
On Wednesday, an EVG reader said that workers cleared away the makeshift shelter where several people had been living. (It was unclear if anyone had been sleeping here of late.)
Yesterday, another reader reported that a dumpster arrived on East 10th Street as workers began clearing out the Fourth Avenue structure, which once housed the Green East deli and St. Marx Music…
There are plans waiting the city's approval for a 10-story, eight-unit building on the site with ground-floor retail. The DOB disapproved the first round of plans in September.
Expect to see a sidewalk bridge and plywood along here soon.
