I wonder if it will be refurbished or torn down. I really hate to see cool old buildings get the wrecking ball.
Nice photo!

My thoughts immediately went the way of James' (James's? That just sounds weird), what will be this building's fate? I actually like it in this state of decay, with all its years showing.

i love the ruination! In New York, you never know what we be razed or restored, so a building like is a time capsule awaiting its fate.

That is lovely, I love the detail in the green painted wood. I hope they're able to restore it.

I'd get out there with a razor blade and get the %&%$#@ grafitti off the windows, then I'd take as many photos as I could of this great old building. THIS is what I expect to see here KM. Leave those glitzy, sleek showgirls to the rest of 'em. You know where you belong.
