I was there around 4:20 and saw the staircases that were dangling. Could only imagaine the number of footsteps they held during their utility. I look forward to hearing what occured today.
I drove by it at least 6 times. There was no meticulous deconstruction. They were just knocking it down. They did everything but use a wrecking ball.
What a sad day for Hudson. It's not just that a historic building was torn down; plenty have been. But this "brutal knock down" happened in broad daylight, after years of lobbying by many people to stop just this kind of destruction; it happened in full view of a Historic Preservation Committee that was created to stop just this sort of destruction. What has gone wrong with this town?
Actually, when i was watching the demolition, i thought how well it had been built and how hard a time they were having wrecking it. its a shame to see it go.
keep swingin that bulldozer arm to the west and get rid of that ugly house that the city can't seem to rid itself of.
