Back in December, we suspected that work was underway at 922 S. 20th St., a former bodega that was set to become a pho place. For the past few months, there's been a hole where the first floor used to be, and no additional construction activity on the site. Yesterday though, a reader checked in and gave us the heads up that the whole building had been demolished.
It really is a shame that this ususual building has come down entirely. It seems like a guarantee that its replacement, whenever it arrives, will look much less unique.
