After months of work, the time has finally come to begin work on demolishing the main building of the old Plimpton Press. Guild street is closed from Lenox to Broadway 8 am- 4:30pm for the two week period beginning August 13 to allow work on the building to continue safely.
I shot this video around 5pm tonight from the intersection of Lenox, Guild and Plimpton streets. Work seems to be moving right along despite the gloomy weather.
