Not long after I started this blog, I wrote about a tiny, forlorn house on Madison Avenue. One of the oldest on the block, the little house had suffered from extreme neglect in recent years.
Sadly, this building could not be saved. Slowly, over the course of this spring and summer, the current owner demolished the building by hand. It came down beam by beam and brick by brick. Until there was nothing left.
The beams in the photo above are new. I don't know what the owner's plans are, but it's clear he is building something there.
