The Little Building That Could (38th Street, Manhattan)

I'm amazed whenever I see a small building nestled among much larger ones, especially in Manhattan, where real estate is so expensive. Has someone deliberately decided to forgo the millions of dollars they would make by developing or selling it? Or have the owners forgotten they own it? Or does someone love this building, or this corner of Manhattan, so much that they want to keep this little piece of littleness just as it is? Then again, the scaffolding and boarded-up windows suggest that maybe the building isn't long for this world anyway...
