Demolition by Neglect Irish Channel

The Irish Channel is located below the Garden District near the river. It did not flood.

Irish peasants fleeing the potato famine in the 1840s and 1850s debarked at Adele Street and were channeled from there to the rest of the country.

The types of deficiencies identified as “Demolition by Neglect” include any structural deficiency or a deficiency in a building part which left unrepaired could lead to deterioration of the building’s structural frame. A building is also identified as “Demolition by Neglect” if it is open to entry by vandals or vagrants.

    MANY PEOPLE ARE QUICK TO CRITICIZE. THE OWNERS OF CHIPPEWA ST ALSO OWN THE BRICK SYNAGOGUE IN THE REAR. HE SAVED THE BRICKS BUT LOOKS AS IF HE’S GONNA MAKE SOME MORE PARKING. MAYBE YOU GUYS NEED TO CRITICIZE MORE QUICKLY TO SAVE THIS DOUBLE. MAYBE PEOPLE NEED TO THINK OF WHAT TO FIGHT FOR. SUPPOSE THIS OWNER DID NOT BUY THE SYNAGOGUE PROPERTY BECAUSE HE COULDN’T GET ENOUGH LAND AROUND IT FOR PARKING TO SATISFY THE BUILDING CODES AND THE BRICK BUILDING WERE ALLOWED TO COLLAPSE! REMEMBER THE LAST BIG PILE OF BRICKS TO COME DOWN ON COLISEUM SQUARE?
