Warehouse Demolition at Third & 23rd

Demolition has been approved for a City-owned three-story industrial building at 738 Third Avenue (23rd/24th).  738, registered as Anchor Stevedoring Company in the 1990s, sits at the edge of the former Tebo Yacht Basin, which was taken over by Todd Shipyards around 1916.  In recent years the warehouse building appears to have been used for light manufacturing, and the lot was also used for NYPD parking.  The Lafarge cement works sit farther back on the pier abutting the property, and porn store Video Xcitement, where a store worker was murdered back in 2011, is next door on the avenue at 740.

If you can manage it, and don't mind the isolation, access to the water down here offers up beautiful views.

Next door to 738 in March, 2015. Winters were snowy once!
