Rubble on W. 44th Street


I was passing through West 44th Street between Eighth and Ninth and I noticed that workmen were ripping the heck out of the former loading docks of the old New York Times building.

Glimpsed through the big bay doors, from which Times trucks once raced with the new editions, men and machines were busy reducing the area to rubble. Africa Israel Investments Ltd., an Israeli holding company, now owns the landmark and plans to rent it out as offices and retail outlets. I'm getting the construction has something to do with created retail spaces on the 44th Street side.

Sorry, it's my cabbie thing. That would be between Eighth and Broadway.

I'm just waiting to see how long before that rubble is sold as souveniers somewhere.
