former Horn & Hardart Automat, New York

Shelly's, W57th St, NYCI snapped Shelly's Restaurant at 104 W57th Street in June 2005 with no inkling that before the end of the following year it would be demolished to make way for a residential tower.

The building was originally constructed as a Horn & Hardart Automat in 1938 and an on-line petition directed to the NY Landmarks Preservation Commission and Manhatten Councilmembers failed to save the Automat.

This condo evicts another cherished landmark, by Jim in Time Square on
Save the Former 1938 NYC Automat From Demolition!!!,
