The weather-beaten building that once housed Boston’s storied Anthony’s Pier 4 restaurant will soon be no more.

Construction vehicles began the demolition of the building Tuesday morning, taking down the last remnants of a city institution that hosted Hollywood celebrities and local notables alike.

Anthony’s had been closed for nearly three years. A one-acre park and new residential building will soon take the place of the once-legendary eatery.
