Broker-blogger Andrew Fine delves into the mysterious multi-level addition sprouting out of an old walk-up building surrounded by Third Avenue legend One Ten 3rd and hellish NYU watering hole Bar None: 'The building is zoned commercial, and a permit was filed to amend the building height to 90', contain 3 units, and be re-categorized as F-1B - Assembly (Churches, Concert Halls). Will it be a church or an assembly hall? Well, plenty of people have assembled at 100 Third Avenue in the past. In 1880 it was a restaurant. In 1910 it became a theater, later named 'The Lyric Theatre'. In the 1930's it catered mainly to the Bowery bum set." Oh, and there's some gay porn mixed in as well. [A Fine]
