☞ REVIVE: The Old Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Building
Demolition over at 12th Avenue and 131st Street has begun as the Manhattanville campus makes progress and that means that the original location of Dinosaur Bar-B-Que is going down. The old gritty warehouse space was transformed to uptown's best BBQ joint years ago before much of anything had arrived in Manhattanville and proved that the right business could work in the area. Walking by the building over week ago, we found the telltale scaffolding up so it is only a matter of time before all will be gone. A new location with the same ambiance opened just down the avenue at 125th Street this past year so the business is still in the industrial neighborhood. The 12th Avenue side of this section of Manhattanville is the furthest west border of the new campus and these buildings will be one of the last ones to go before new construction arrives.
