Vintage Photo: Demolition of 1st Ave Entrance to Manhattan VA, May 1989 (Where Bogey was Dumped in ‘The Harder They Fall’, 1956)

I was prompted to upload this photo by Mark Phillips, whose wrote a wonderful, and highly researched piece (nycinfilm.com/2020/08/25/the-harder-they-fall-1956) about the NYC locations of the movie, ‘The Harder They Fall’, with Humphrey Bogart.  This ground’s-eye view supplements the bird’s-eye view of this entrance posted a few weeks ago.

Early in my tenure working at the Manhattan VA, work began on an outpatient clinic that destroyed the 1st Avenue entrance (408 First Avenue), including the lobby in front of which Bogart’s character was dumped in the movie.
