Castle Ballroom Demolition

Update: See the ballroom before it suffered structural collapse here.

I wasn’t going to bother driving by the rapidly disappearing Castle Ballroom, but I ended up driving by on Saturday and thought I would take a look. It’s sad to see, particularly because there is nothing happening along this stretch of Olive. There’s nothing but parking lots, vacant lots, and poorly maintained buildings. One can barely understand why Olive is so wide through this area.

Then there’s weird things like this nearby; what is the point?

    I love that cast iron storefront (and gangway threshold) that stand where a building once was… I’m hoping that it’s turned into the entrance to a courtyard along with that row of rehabs immediately to the west.
