Photos of demolitions on Dean Street, and a curious instance of preservation; what next?

Here's a set of photos, via Raulistic (aka Raul Rothblatt), of demolition on Dean Street from Wednesday through Friday.

And, with some annotation added by Brownstoner, note how a handsome old door disappeared, perhaps to be re-sold or to grace some demolition worker's own project. That must not have been completely kosher, because the door was temporarily replaced with an out-of-context substitute.

But it does show that someone sees some value to preservation.

Next, will we see the nicely restored 24 Sixth Avenue dismantled for parts as it's demolished?
