Lower East Side, NYC

I enjoy building archaeology. Why are these windows and openings newly bricked over? Did they just sell the air rights? Wouldn’t that interfere with the old laws regarding windows per apartment, the old tenement laws that created the dumbbell buildings? They’re odd-looking places for windows, anyway.

Okay, cutting all the other stuff out, I like the way it looks. Old bricks. New bricks. I need some coffee.
