Farewell formstone…

A reader reports:

“Saw this on Friday. They are chipping the formstone off the old Fringe building on New York Ave. NW with a hammer and chisel.”

Ed. Note: Capital Fringe is now located at 1358-1360 Florida Ave, NE.

And thanks to a twitter reader for reminding me that this was also A.V. Ristorante Italiano’s space that closed in 2007. Here’s a couple shots from flickr:
