A crew from the Department of Sanitation is on site at the old Broome Street fire house this morning, clearing garbage and other debris.  The 1937 building is being prepared for demolition in the very near future. As you probably know, this lot is site 5 of the big Essex Crossing development project. In recent years, the property was used by a movie props business. In spite of those “no dumping” signs on the fence, it’s pretty much been a free-for-all  during the past few months.

Site 5 also includes a public parking facility. As we reported the other day, it will be closing at the end of the year. There are two tenements on the parcel, as well. Community Board 3 was notified recently that all of the residential tenants have either been relocated or they will be in a matter of days. One commercial tenant, a shoe repair store, had agreed to vacate by the end of last month. As you can see, it’s still open for business. Demolition for the first phase of construction will include the tenements, the fire house as well as the Essex Street Market building on the south side of Delancey Street.
