Down Michigan Avenue

First started writing about 1466 Michigan Avenue years ago. It's the view looking out my office window down Michigan Avenue.
The construction trailer showed up this week and all the red-tape associated with asbestos abatement did too. I've written before that 1466 got a new roof about seven years ago and the last time I ventured inside thought it was actually in pretty good shape structurally. Oh well, rather than properly board and secure this place, seems like City hall has placed their sights on spending another 25k or so for a mindless demolition.

Not that demolitions are a bad thing. Yet here in Buffalo we use the scatter shot approach, i mean there's no strategy.

1466 is another example. Good house, bad demolition
