The debris-strewn, fenced-in lot on the corner of Clinton and Stanton Streets has been empty since the beginning of time. Many moons ago, a sign went up on the fence announcing that the 25' x 75' rectangle of prime LES territory was for sale. Life continued, and the lot sat empty. Now, jolting the core of our being, Loho 10002 reports that ground has broken on a six-story residential building on the spot, as evidenced by the heavy machinery that practically takes up the whole damn thing. Interesting. Some further investigation shows that 32 Clinton Associates LLC purchased the land in July for $2.8 million. Small price to pay for such a plum chunk of Hell Square.
