Photos taken last week above.
And photos taken this afternoon.
Strange how a NYC's Department of Building's permit for a two story addition resulted in the total demo of this decrepit, but sweet little house. It was the only wood clad building on the block and was most certainly the original building on that site.
I first posted photos of 159 Smith Street last week, when it became clear that it was in the process of being taken down.
Some see this as progress. I see it as a bloody shame.
