Sad news for another reason: The Bel-Loc is one of the few remaining examples of Googie Architecture on the East Coast.

Okay, without cheating, when I saw the picture of it, I thought the building looked like Peck Chevrolet in Ballston (now The Mussel Bar). Is it the same?

Both are examples of Googie architecture -- Bob Peck on the more flamboyant end of the spectrum, but the Bel-Loc overhang is definitely Googie too. You have a good eye, DonRocks.

You know, maybe there's a chance Starbucks will keep the architecture - I mean, why not?

(Thank you for your kind words, Bob.)
