1991 - The Cooper Square Plan; also RIP Mars Bar

This NY Times article from 1991 gives quite a bit of background on the political reasons why the lot on Houston and Bowery sat vacant for so long.  At this point, the lots are called "Site 1A" and "Site 2" (now where the Avalon Bay complexes are).

Also, read at The Gothamist about whats going to happen to the last few remaining buildings left on the "Site 2" block (btwn Houston and 1st st., Bowery and 2nd ave).  RIP Mars Bar and the locksmith that will copy ANY key.
