485-491 Ninth Avenue (401 West 37th Street)

These tenements were odd survivors of the 20th century changes on the West Side. A bankruptcy and 2007 legal action may have had some part in the story. As part of the Hudson Yards rezoning, they were protected from demolition and a sidewalk shed observed in 2013 gave hope for remdial work as the building began shedding bricks. However, the long-term strategy of the landlord appeared to be demolition through neglect, which was accelerated by removal of the rear walls in 2015.
