CurbedWire: Harlem Church Destructoporn, Problems on Park

New, 5 comments

HARLEM?On Monday we got word that structural instability would force the Baptist Temple Church on 116th Street between Fifth and Lenox Avenues to meet its maker. A tipster just sent in some shots of the church, and it's looking like now is the time for last rites. The block remains closed. [CurbedWire Inbox]

UPPER EAST SIDE?Glassy sliver 1055 Park Avenue has been a fascination for many, which is why we're not surprised that tipsters are combing PropertyShark for any tidbits regarding the 5-unit building. The latest: "A contractor has filed suit which I thought is unusual in that liens are the norm. You can tell from previous reportings this development has been having its issues. Per Property Shark: Lis Pendens filed 6/18/2009, Creditor: Vanguard Construction And Development." [CurbedWire]
