Another Demo...

This single family house at 441 Masten Avenue, directly across the street from the future home of Performing Arts High School, was demolished this week.

I typically won't post pics of owner-occupied homes that are in derelict condition. This home was occupied until just a few weeks ago when a stenciled sign "Order To Vacate" appeared on its front. The front porch had been falling off the foundation for years. It's now history. That one new build behind on Chester, on your right, was recently purchased atforclosure for less than half it's original selling price in 1999. It had been empty for 3 years.
