* ''Series/MadMen'' has an episode highlighting how the demolition of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pennsylvania_Station_(former_building) old Penn Station]] to make way for Madison Square Garden was seen as this by many New Yorkers. Don, who's from Central Pennsylvania, and a few others who aren't from New York can't bring themselves to care as much as those who were raised in the city.

** Subverted when Timmy [[TimeTravel goes back in time]] to acquire the deed to Dimmsdale Flats, a place his father loved as a child. When he gets back to the present, his father promptly sells it to the developers, because he realized that his childhood [[NostalgiaFilter wasn't as great as he thought it was]] (in fact, his exact words were "My childhood stank!"). The name of the company was in fact the Tearing Down Your Most Cherished Childhood Memories Construction Company.

* Happens in Styx's 1980 album ''Paradise Theatre'' during the instrumental break on "Halfpenny, Twopenny." If you listen very carefully, you can hear the sounds of the demolition crew setting up and a few people having fond memories of the place over the bassline, the piano, and a bell tolling a death-knell. This is set up in the song "Lonely People", where a voice at the beginning says, "I tell you, Irma...I can't wait until they tear that damn old theater down."

* ''CandyCandy''. Subverted as the tree gets relocated to a rich guy whose hobby is tree climbing (no, not [[MichaelJackson that one]]...)
* In the ''MagicalPlay'' episode "How Distant the Showa Era Has Grown," a group of kids, including the son of [[MagicalGirl Nononon's]] host family, Kazuhiko, go to play in a vacant lot, only to find it being bulldozed. The kids reveal to Nononon that this was the last vacant lot around, and now they have no place to play baseball. After they leave, Nononon uses her powers to create some ghosts that chase off the construction crew. The next morning, she excitedly brings Kazuhiko to the lot to show him what she's done, but the construction crew had come back by then.
