Demolition Progress

It's getting pretty ridiculous(ly exciting):

this machine has been chomping away

blue skies

the depth of the buildings

almost a strange optical illusion

Last week the workers finished re-mortaring the brick facades that will be saved:

it's a damn shame that the bricks from the back walls weren't saved. those can (and should) be reused. people will pay an arm and a leg for quality old bricks.

Of course no one thought of reusing the bricks...it would have required independent thought lol.

I cant wait to see this type of development over here in Congress Heights - but then again it has been a major struggle just to get them to come and clean the graffiti. Thank goodness for this blog or one may think nothing happens lol!
