It's been a great couple of weeks for sidewalk bridge removal! The one on Ave A near 5th coming down was life-changing.
Wonderful. These monstrosities are such eyesores which can remain for years.
Let’s not count the chickens before they hatch. As noted, the scaffolding was previously taken down then returned. As of Tuesday morning, the metal framework remains. Hopefully they’re not having second thoughts!
The A and 5th one caught me by surprise. So airy now.
They’ve been playing this game on 9th St/First Ave for about 20 years now. They pulled down the bridge after about 15 years, planted new trees in the sidewalk holes, and then put the bridge back up 9 months later. My years count might be off, but it does seem like forever.
It looks like the scaffolding around the ex-Duane Reade on Fourth Ave and 14th St is coming down as well. And they seem to be entering the final stages of work on Cooper Union as well, though the full scaffolding there remains in place
Village view ! Now if we can only get rid of the grimey corner store that sells looseys
Bring back the Orchidia!
Interesting to note most sidewalk scaffolding is generally up on average for 3 years.
