Foundation watch: 24 1st Ave.

On our last visit to 24 First Ave. and its property mate 99-101 E. Second St., workers had just demolished the structures on the property.

These buildings were leveled to make way for a 7-story, 22-unit residential building called The 101 Condominium.

Work is now in the pit stage... here's a look through the blogger portals on the plywood to see how foundation is coming along...

No. 24 's previous occupants included the cabaret Lucky Cheng's (1993-2012) and Club Baths, the first openly gay-owned bathhouse (1971-1983)... and Cave Canem and La Nouvelle Justine in between.

Cave Canem and that cess pool of a jacuzzi in the basement... still, fun times before the neighborhood morphed into playground for NYU children from the midwest

So much luxury so little time - I hope they have air b'n'b units available so everyone can sample the NEW LUXURY!
