The Art-Moderne storefront on Greenwich Avenue's former Day-O restaurant, the one that preservationists tried in vain to preserve, has officially been confirmed vanished.
It's been hidden behind padlocked, super-secure plywood for some time now, but on a recent walkby, we caught a glimpse inside. There is nothing left of the facade--no more curve and no more chrome. The "historic corner column," however, is now unexposed, as promised. You can see it in the center of this shot of the interior.
Here is what we've lost. 2010:
