HARLEM?Earlier today a tipster wrote: "I got a text message on this from blackboard.com on Saturday. Emergency demolition is being done at a building on 116th between 5th and Lenox. Baptist Temple Church at 20 West 116th (next door to the Kalahari) has a big crack across the front. The church has had a sidewalk shed in front for months. Two big cranes are parked in the street and traffic still is being detoured this morning." The Buildings Department website shows a vacate order on the property due to structural instability. At right, a PropertyShark photo from happier times. [CurbedWire Inbox]
