The much-disputed Advantage Title building is gone, surrounded by rubble and occupied, for the moment, only by workers and equipment clearing the lot.
Where once a grand hotel, a department store and later a business office stood, the site was the focus of opposition to its owner's decision to sell the property to make way for a new TD Bank.
Neighbors objected to traffic a bank could bring, and preservations cited the history of well-known and distinctive building that marked the gateway to Huntingon Village.
After several months of quiet, scaffolding went up around the building, on the northeast corner of New York Avenue and Fairview Street, in late September.

In October, Joseph Willen, whose Advantage Group operated in the building, told Patch his company had moved to Melville. "I am certain TD will be a wonderful addition to Huntington and will prove to be a win-win for both the residential and business communities. I am also looking forward to continuing to grow the Advantage Group in Huntington Township as we celebrate our 25 year anniversary in December," Willen said.
