As we noted last week, the Superior Ink Factory along West Street in the far West Village is slated for demolition to make way for a very tall tower. Triple Mint snaps photos of the site, including unlucky 380 West 12th Street, "a co-op with a number of what we would now term 'buyer-beware' units which could be enjoying the last of their precious river views."
Meantime, Curbed has received an email from the Greenwich Village Society for Historical Preservation:
This is from GVSHP regarding Superior Ink. It is basically a call to arms. The Superior Ink factory is a beautiful building and it would be a shame to tear that gorgeous smoke stack down. It does seem that there is still hope.And you thought we were just joking about the barricades.
