Answers to Puzzle #30 Wordplay: Gone but Not Frgttn

If you tried Friday’s puzzle and could not come up with the answer for number 2 on the list, it is because I really blew it.  The lost NYC fixture that was the answer for number 2 was incorrectly done, spectacularly incorrect in fact.  The puzzle was to figure out the names of famous New York institutions that are no longer with us, in which I removed the vowels from each said institution.  Well, for number two I completely brain farted and removed all of the consonants.  IAAI!!!!!!!!  I was enamored with my own cleverness of providing nothing but an apostrophe for a clue, and failed to realize that I had COMPLETELY REVERSED THE PREMISE OF THE PUZZLE.  Sigh.  No matter, like the ancient Persian rug maker, I shall incorporate my mistake into my puzzling tapestry in the form of a bonus puzzle.  To wit:  Can you figure out the New York City iconic place that recently disappeared where if you removed all the consonants you would be left with a sole apostrophe?  The answer for this will appear tomorrow.  The answers for the eleven solvable puzzles can be found by clicking below.
