Woodlawn Row House - Update 9/2005
Frequent readers of this blog know that the Woodlawn Row Houses sit diagonally across from one of Buffalo's public schools. The site is currently being used by Waterfront School on a temporary basis and will soon become the new permanent home of Performing Arts High School.
This afternoon I re-boarded the Woodlawn Row Houses and took these pics that show the gradual decline of this "local-landmark" and City of Buffalo owned property. This is a text book example of "demolition by neglect." Masten District Councilman Antoine Thompson and Common Council President David Franczyk - who seems to be more interested in the "historic" property of Perrysburg, NY
more than he is here in Buffalo - know about the condition of this building...and do nothing.
The complete archive containing monthly pictures of the decline of this City of Buffalo owned property that was designated a "local-landmark" by the Preservation Board is available here.
