Thanks to a keen-eyed reader, many of us just learned how the historic Granada Towers (310 Riverside Blvd) had one of its three towers removed. I actually couldn’t believe it until I saw myself. And yep, the tower in the middle is indeed missing.
How can this building, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984, lose such an important detail of its facade? I thought that once it’s landmarked, it cannot be drastically changed. Those towers were a major feature of that building too. Anybody?
Here is a photo of the building in 2009 [Wikipedia]:
