Condo builders, rejoice! You have triumphed again.
According to Metro, the structure won't be scrapped but shipped to a museum in the Keystone State. So we can visit it. But it doesn't sound like you could get cheese fries in a museum diner.
Manager Billy Genat said something fascinatingly peculiar: "You can see the sun through these windows now, but you won’t be able to see the sun anymore when the condos come. It will look like the triangle of the devil."
Triangle of the Devil. Right now it's called Avenue of the Americas. Think City Hall will approve a street name change?
