    sad for your loose...and this is a great tribute. I an arena would provide jobs and stimulate the area. Hopefully it can still be positive.

    yeah I heard about the foundry. Another great loss. I have many a happy memory there. Nothing is sacred anymore.. You do know I'm from London, don't you?. Well not strictly, but about 20 miles north..lived there for a long time though.

    rips out the character, such a shame, great lighting in the shot though.

    Ohh that I missed ! but for foundry it's the same deal they knock it down to built another posh art hotel the building is ugly and foundry isn't the only one there are many venues shutting down exactly for the same reasons

    I had so many great times in there...this makes me so sad.

    Great tribute Pex, sorry to hear there knocking down your watering hole. I've got some friends that live in that area, and I'm sure they bummed. They are going to be clearing out that whole corner area between Flatbrush and Atlantic to make room for that, right?
