In case you’re a voyeur for this sort of thing: scaffolding and construction netting has gone up at 76 Third Avenue, the building next to the former home of Nevada Smiths that’s due to be replaced with a building designed by controversial architect Karl Fischer. A full demolition permit was issued on Feb. 24. Meanwhile, the building that will house the new Nevada Smiths, a block away at 100 Third Avenue, has been completely stripped of scaffolding. Might as well take a look, yes?

Update: According to Department of Buildings records, a permit to demolish the former Nevada Smiths building at 74 Third Avenue was issued today. Expect it to be shrouded soon as well.
