The denuding of the South Street Seaport continues. First, the Fulton Fish Market. And now, the Sharper Image. The current leaseholder of Pier 17, giant mall company General Growth Properties, will likely raze the mall that currently sits in the East River. Fortunately, they'll likely build a bigger mall in its place. "The lower you go, the less open space there is -- but nothing has been decided," a spokeswoman for General Growth Properties told amNY. Another source told the daily that GGP has a "tall iconic building" in mind. Paging Mr. Calatrava. The company will reveal preliminary plans for the space Monday at a Community Board 1 meeting.
