Post Picture of The Day: The Gentrification Void, Lower East Side. The phenomenon of gentrification, ever the talk of The City in this current time, has erased segments of our building fabric, creating voids of urban wasteland. In this instance, a stalled housing project; this current state of apparent construction has lied in this fallow state for years. Perhaps financing has dried up, or proper permits have not been pulled. Nontheless, these empty spaces act as remnants, ringing hollow on the streets of New York.
