35 Cooper Square Is in Its Final Days

The fate of 35 Cooper Square has seemed a done deal for a while now, and earlier today we got word from EV Grieve that crews might be on the scene tearing down the building. We investigated and found a couple of workmen on the roof, as well as a Caterpillar parked outside, along with a lot of building debris. According to the Department of Buildings, the permit to demolish was issued on May 6 (EV Grieve has a photo of that permit here). So far, the scene is relatively calm, but we'll keep an eye out. In any case, this seem to mark the sad, ultimate end for one of the remaining historic buildings on the Bowery. Photos after the jump.
