For Sale on 22nd

I just saw a sales listing for 222 22nd Street, which is home to the Parisi-Torre VFW Post 8903.  The listing describes the property as a "vacant re-development site."  It's also described as a brick building (stucco-covered frame always confuses realtors) close to the W subway line (Whitehall Street isn't that far away).

Earlier this year photographer Larry Racioppo and I collaborated on a piece about another local VFW Post, the Edward F. Lukoski VFW 7096, on Third.  In the piece, Larry fondly recalls family parties at Parisi-Torre, and shares photographs of family celebrations.  You can see them here.

If anyone has any updates on #8903, I'd very much appreciate the information.
