The collapse left a storefront-size hole in the block, like the gap of a missing tooth. The scaffolding out front was bent and broken. A massive ventilation unit leaned uneasily atop the pile.I know it's 100th St, but still. That is SO Upper West Side, to be able to pull off both $600 strollers for families of three AND "No Yuppie Condos" graffiti.
Neighbors kept saying how as many as 150 people gathered at the building on Wednesday night to protest plans for the construction of a 31-story apartment building on the site. Late yesterday, only a few pieces of the scaffolding still stood, one of them made of wood. On it, someone had spray-painted "Yuppie Condos" surrounded by a circle with a slash.
