Manny P. here…

   The location of the studios where the original Dark Shadows television series was taped is scheduled for demolition. During the history of the television show, cast members often interacted with fans outside during breaks in filming. It’s difficult not to feel a sense of sadness on hearing about the building’s pending demise.

   The 10,000 square-foot property, located at 442 West 54th St., NY, NY, is expected to be demolished to make way for a pair of six-story residential buildings. Emmut Properties paid $25 million for the property, it was announced in January.

   A deadline for construction on the new properties has not yet been disclosed so, if you’ve ever wanted to get a gander at where Dark Shadows was taped, you’d better move fast. Since I am visiting the area in March, I may have to pay my last respects.
