Well, this is depressing.
The location of the studios where the original DARK SHADOWS television series was taped is scheduled for demolition, according to The Real Deal. I've spent the last few years pouring over the history of the television show, and have seen hundreds of photos of cast members interacting with fans outside during breaks in filming. While I wasn't part of this community, it's difficult not to feel a sense of sadness on hearing about the building's pending demise.
The 10,000 square-foot block-thru property, located at 442 West 54th St., 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.
