East Broadway - FiDi Skyline

HDR photo from February of this year - looking out over a block of Lower East Side tenements towards the skyscrapers in the Financial District. Many of these old buildings are slowly disappearing as the LES gentrifies and owners replace tenements with new, taller buildings. This view will likely be different in a few years. One of the larger (double-width) tenements on this block was torn down two years ago to make room for a hi-rise building but apparently the funds ran out and all that remains is an empty lot - for now.
