We talk about it so much.  Nothing new here.  But I like the contrast of the Then + Now.

The old (+ heavy water-damaged) Maggio Beef Company at 820 Washington (on the corner of Washington and Gansevoort Streets) will give way to the new Whitney Museum.

Maybe I’m too old-fashioned.  Come on; grow up little girl. Still, I like the blend of the old school, keep some of the butchers and the industrial mixed with the new world a la the High Line.

The Standard.  Scoop Street.  The DVP flagship.

Still, you won’t see this remains of the animals (save the rats) turn up anymore.

The West Side is the cultural place to be.

The Whitney space was once slated to be the DIA space.

Now it’s the Whitney Space.

Carcass’ be gone.
