The old building on the left was once a horse stable and in the 80s through the 90s it was Le Madri restaurant. There was a big fight over landmarking that building on the left, but now it is becoming "The Yves." I live right across the street, and I am watching it going up. It's all blue-tinted sculptured glass, with a rooftop pool, and apartments that are going for up to six million dollars. I will share the same neighborhood, same view... and the irony is that we will all go down to the same street and smell the same garbage and dog poop. Welcome to the neighborhood!
