126

This is an abandoned auto body shop in the little wedge formed by Van Cortlandt Avenue East and St. George's Crescent, July 2015. Demolished a year or two later to make way for a high-rise residential building, supposedly including about 120 “low-income” units, where low income is no doubt defined to be way more than anybody who lives around here can afford (median household income is about $25,000), and I don't even want to think about what the other units will cost. I kind of like this building, it has that Streamlined Moderne look that harmonizes with the 1930s apartment house just up the hill.
