There Today, Gone Tomorrow
Earlier this year, a gorgeous structure was demolished on Church Street directly west of the Woolworth Building. The Dun & Bradstreet building came down revealing the entire western face of the Woolworth Building for the first time since the early 1950s'. Unfortunately, a new monolith will rise out of the vacant lot over the next year hiding one of Manhattan's skyline's beauties when viewed from the west.
For a brief time, look up and savor the Woolworth Building at sunset from the sidewalk on Church Street.
