    2008_8_wellner.jpgOne casualty of the undulating glass of new luxury development One Jackson Square in Greenwich Village: the sandblasting out of existence of the old Wellner Motors on the building next door. Forgotten New York mourns the loss: "For decade after decade, long after its titular garage had left the scene, it had advertised sales, service and parts for GMC trucks, as well as parts and repairs for Fords, Mercurys and Lincolns. There was a separate ad for a garage on West 12th, Castle Garage, featuring 'day & night parking' and showing its alphanumeric CHelsea phone number. The still-red hot NYC real estate market has spoken, and these sort of relics are not appreciated by the moneyed class these days, apparently." [Forgotten New York]
