Another One Bites the Dust

posted by earthwirehead @ 10:39 AM

At 103 years old, it almost seems that the first thing to say about the emergency demolition of the old Savoy Hotel at 1616 Main street is "well, what took so long?" This city usually pulls buildings about as frequently as the 'Sex in the City' girls change shoes or boyfriends, and usually for about as much good reason.

The Savoy's luck ran out when city workers recently discovered that it was literally crumbling as they watched. Plans originally to be announced at last Friday's press conference were for an emergency demolition the following day. A delay in obtaining equipment pushed the demolition to this coming friday.

So...if the only controlled demolition you've ever watch is 9/11 footage, next friday is your lucky day.
