The Day | Two Buildings Face Destruction, One is Reborn

Reading on the StreetRoey Ahram

Good morning, East Village.

316 East Third Street isn’t the only building fighting for survival around here: Bowery Boogie circulates a letter asking Councilmember Margaret Chin to uphold landmark status for 135 Bowery.

Meanwhile it’s too late for a townhouse that dated back to 1852, at 331 East Sixth Street— an EV Grieve reader snaps a photo documenting the latest state of its demise.

It’s not all gloom and doom as far as preservation goes. The Epoch Times has a report from the scene of the White Roof Project we told you about earlier: “Housing developments that faced obliteration multiple times are now being painted as the beacon of hope for a sustainable future in New York City.”

Elsewhere in sustainability, Goat Town has completed its backyard, where Eater reports that the restaurant is growing lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, and the like.
