Let the Denuding Begin: Crews Spotted Atop P.S. 64

The Village Voice's Power Plays blog has visuals of the denuding crews spotted this morning on the roof of the old P.S. 64 (aka the former CHARAS/El Bohio building). We've been waiting for this kind of throwdown ever since last month when developer Gregg Singer, who's envisioning a 19-story dorm at the site, promised to start hacking away at the facade despite the landmarking that occurred June 20. Color from the scene: "On Tuesday morning, workers could be seen drilling into P.S. 64's ornate dormer windows and terra cotta trim." Click through for a Fred Durst sighting, more shameless archi-carnage, and the latest dirty details of this East Village battle.
