Don't know how, unless you mean a clean construction site.

I snapped this shot about a week ago, while they were still hanging the billboard - if you stand in just the right spot, the cutout in the picture lines up nicely with the one in the building...it's a pretty cool effect :

Perhaps longer than you think. Especially depending on FAR, how stubborn the owner is, if the properties are rented or sold, etc.

I live on 86th between first and second, in what is from the outside a pretty ugly, nondescript building just like one of those, built in the 1920s, less than a block from the new subway, and somehow no one has come knocking on my door for a development, despite me living in what in 5 years may be the most lucrative new construction area in manhattan.

Oddly enough, in the long run I'd love to see someone come knocking, on the condition that BIG designs the replacement haha
