There’s a Playboy centerfold-style photo of this building, which is as luscious as that of the most beautiful PMOTY!!!


#29

gorgeous!


#30

I agree, Street. Stern delivers!!!

Also, the UWS is beautiful!!!


#31

Rising quickly.


#32

Nice!


#33

Now above Zabar’s and the rest of the building line on the west side of Broadway between 80th and 81st.


#34

While Zabars is an institution, I’d like to see that building come down.


#35

Agreed. The Zabars building is crap and needs to go.

I would prefer a new building and then Zabars can take modern space in the new structure.


#36

Sorry but as a resident of the area I have to disagree. Zabars is such a major institution (and tourist site) on the UWS it has to stay. The company owns the building. I suspect if they tried to tear it down the neigjborhood would go bananas and rightfully so. I love that place and enjoy its eccentric sppearance. It is part of what makes for a neighborhood.


#37

I certainly respect your opinion, Chused.


#38

Thanks. Not every lowrise weird building needs to be replaced with a newbie. What’s a great city without some surprises and variations. Every time I walk around New York City I am surprised by what I find when I turn a new corner. That’s why I love living here.


#39

I agree. I actually favor preservation. However, I think that The Zabars faux Tudor elements look out of place on the UWS.


#40

I agree with Chused. The downside to a lot of the new development is the anywhere USA effect.
