Next door to the old Shaw Hotel...

"The building next to it which housed a Korean storefront church is knocked down. The property itself has a "for sale" sign in front." - anonymous

Looks like 30 apartments, 14 parking spaces and a day care "community facility". Always wondered how developers know what type of business they're going to rent it out to before it's even built. (Actually, they don't. They just put that down to get a larger FAR and then they convert it into something else and DOB does nothing.)

Hey, what happened to Jimmy Van Bramer - didn't he come out for landmark designation.

now there is a guy that is four square for community preservation - as evidenced by all those pictures he takes over at Dutch Kills.

yes yes yes made a number of meetings.

well, you know there is a catch. how many actually happened?

Landmark designation?

Let's get a grip on reality folks.

Aside from the architectural quality of the porch posts, this is a run-of-the-mill nothing.

The superb Steinway Mansion rots while a fuss is being made over this?

C'mon now!

It has historical value, moron. Not everything we save has to be front cover material for Architectural Digest.
