Disappearing NYC Inspired Blogs

Disappearing New York City landmarks have inspired two blogs worthy of note.

Check out Jeremiah Moss’s &#8220ongoing obituary for my dying city&#8221 Vanishing New York, subtitled &#8220The Book of Lamentations: A Bitterly Nostalgic Look at a City in The Process of Going Extinct.&#8221

A second blog, Brooks of Sheffield’s Lost City, declares itself &#8220A running Jeremiad on the vestiges of Old New York as they are steamrolled under or threatened by the currently ruthless real estate market and the City Fathers’ disregard for Gotham’s historical and cultural fabric.&#8221

Both are worth a read, and can be found at our blogroll at right.
