ANSWER: Lenox Avenue looking west on 125th Street. The Whole Foods under construction at the corner replaces a building that was over a 100 years old but a mysterious fire caused the demise of the structure about a decade ago. Old Koch's department store and the former Hotel Theresa are some ofth the other landmarks that are still standing today.
