Does anyone know what's going on with this building, I just got back from NY and noticed that they're doing alot of interior demolition. The Odd Fellows building is the one on Monroe that has the "Starbucks" ad on the side

I hope they're not going to demo that it. While not that fancy, I always liked that building, and the words "odd fellows" wer just fun to see on the top of a building. Not sure when it was built, but I remember coming across pictures of it from the 1880s-90s at the Burton.

There was a dumpster out front today, when I walked by a noon. The steel doors were half down on both the left and right store fronts. On the right, an empty store front with steal support beams was exposed. In the left, the clothing store was still visible.

I've always wondered if that building's top stories were added on later, given the dates above the door that opens to the upper levels.
