The disastrous collapse of the demolition site at 125th Street and FDB/8th Avenue was the big news this week but now a new sign has been revealed after the dust settled. There is not much left of the last standing building on this part of the commercial block but now one can see that some old signage on the adjacent building has been exposed. This particular corner must have had low level structures on site over a century ago since the center building had painted advertising on its side wall. Click on image to enlarge.
