NEW YORK | 200 Amsterdam Ave | 668 FT | 55 FLOORS

No real significant change in four months. Does that DOB report indicate there is an ongoing land use dispute that is holding things up?

Just walked by the site. Locked up tighter than a drum. No work going on. This project has to be on a hold for some reason.

Walked by 200 Amsterdam again today. Still no sign of any work having occurred since I last visited over three weeks ago. Even the trash behind the scaffold barrier fence hasn’t changed position. The project is a mystery to me. Anyone have any information about what is going on?

Walked by once more and surprise! There’s some activity. A lot of new equipment is on site, part of the perimeter fencing has been rebuilt, and as shown below a new demolition permit has just been issued to a different contractor. So I guess the old synagogue building will finally begin to come down.

Chused,

Do you know what’s going on at 2461 B’Way near 93rd St?

Someone said that the corner building with the BoA is a landmark that will be saved. The B’Way side looks like crap but the 91st St side looks great. I hope that it’s saved but that the rest of that crappy block comes down .

Don’t know exactly rogerwalpole though I vaguely recall a West Side Rag article a while back suggesting that the corner building would be saved as another new apartment building would be constructed next door.

Thanks, Chused. I assume that you live on the UWS. Could you snap a photo of the site the next time you’re up there?

Sure, though I’m not in that next of the UWS very often. If I hear something of note is happening I’ll take a trek.

Sounds good!

The old synagogue is largely demolished. Because of the fencing it’s difficult to see the progress from the street. But the portions of the building that used to be above the scaffolding are gone as the top picture indicates. And if you look carefully at the bottom picture you can see sunlight behind the barriers. Clearly the entire interior has now been demolished. The site should be cleared fairly soon.

More demo progress is now visible. Top image is the interior. Below that is the southern wall most of which is now gone.

Excavation has just begun along, of course, with demolition of the basement levels of the now gone synagogue.
