  • That is heartbreaking.

  • As sad as it is that a house like this is to be demolished, but given the structural damage that is visible, leaving it up is a safety hazard.

  • There was never any question in my mind that this house needed to go. One of the intentions of this blog is to record what is being lost.

    It was sad to watch the occupants of the house witness the demolition and not being able to retrieve their possessions. One Family had lived here for over 20 years. As renters.
