I must apologize to the readers and the person who sent this in on October 15th for forgetting until now to post this.
I took these pics this morning of the building being demolished at Queensboro Plaza, where many older structures are being renovated or else swept away entirely, all in the name of luxury apartments, of course. Everything for the rich, who have reinvented NYC in their own bland image.
The building being torn down at QBP looked like a bank with big Doric columns out front and I have been seeing it for years from the N train. Most of this time it has been closed but recently it looked like a night club was operating there. At any rate the impressive facade is lost. A faint painted advertisement or sign has reappeared on the neighboring building.
Queensboro Plaza is now a hotbed of luxury development. The whole place is just going to be an extension of Yupperton.

Here's a story about murals that were stolen from the bank in 2000.
