Ikea Demolition Porn Update

Gowanus Lounge's Monday post on the weekend demolition derby at the Ikea site was wrong. We predicted all the Todd Shipyard buildings would be gone in a week or so. By the look of things, they could be toast before we fire up the $5.99 hibachi from the Red Hook Fairway for Memorial Day. Gothamist brings us "Demolition Porn" in the form of photos (like the magnificent shot above) shot by blogger extraordinaire Alexis Robie of Lex's Folly that show the buildings coming down as fast as the Greenpoint Terminal Market (but without the attention-grabbing flames and billowing smoke.)

While we're on the subject of Gothamist, they've got an excellent neighborhood take on the McCarren Pool concert controversy. You can also check out our own McCarren Pool concert posts from a couple of weeks back on GL or on Curbed.
