☞ REVIVE: An Update at 1770 Madison




Any hope of saving the old bank building at 1770 Madison on the corner of 116th Street has pretty much failed since it now appears that the entire structure has been demolished. Walking by this section of East Harlem in the past week, we noticed that the building no longer exists and a new plywood fence has been placed up on the site which sold for $2.35 million this past year.

This building with the doric columns at the west side of 116th Street was formerly used as church but has been shuttered for the past couple of decades until it was placed on the market last year.  A report from a few years back explains that the former owner of the property had been waiting for divine help to come up with money to restore it one day: LINK.
