The end of Tin Pan Alley?

Much to the dismay of tenants and preservationists, five of the buildings on West 28th Street between Broadway and Sixth Avenue - a block that for 60 years was the heart of the songwriting industry - have gone up for sale.

The buildings, at 47, 49, 51, 53 and 55 West 28th Street, are being sold as a group for - hold on to your hat in these cacophonous economic times - a mere $44 million.

Well well well.

Lets see if the preservation community is worth their salt.

In their backyard.

If these go, yet another indication that the whole movement should be scrapped and we need to start over.

With Margo Gayle's passing, the first generation is just about gone.

What is left is the dregs.
