Michelle Myles got a bird’s eye view of the demolition of the historic Essex Street Market building at 140 Essex St. When demolition is complete, the developers of Essex Crossing will begin putting up an 8-story residential building for low-income seniors. As she points out, this is not the building in which the current Essex Market is located. That 1940-era structure won’t face the wrecking ball until all of the merchants have moved to a new facility on the south side of Delancey Street in the fall of this year.
