DEMOLITION: 164-168 WEST 136TH STREET



Harlem Bespoke: We were hopeful for the future of the pair of brownstones at 164-168 West 136th Street just west of Adam Clayton Powell when the townhouses sold back in 2015 but a full restoration never quite happened.  Plywood fences when up in 2017 but then nothing happened until earlier in the year as the lower photo reveals.  Everything was demolished since there was no landmark protection for this historic block and a poster out front now reveals what will be arriving in the not too distant future.
