From David Schonauer’s article regarding “The Secret Lives of Buildings” for Pro Photo Daily:

Photographer Marc Yankus is haunted by a building.

“On my way to the museum one day [when I was a boy], I was horrified to see wrecking crews knocking down one of my favorite buildings, a Beaux-Arts apartment building on 79th Street. In the months that followed, a monstrosity of a tower rose in its place. And while that eyesore is still standing today, the lost building—gone now for 40 years—endures in my memory [as] a fading, elegiac postcard of a lost time and place.”
