Utica NY 2004-05

Between nasty weather and a nasty cold, I've had to curtail my photo-explorations this week. I dug a series out of the archives, though, which I think will fit in well in the community :-) This set captures the demolition of the vacant Utica Plumbing Supply warehouse and an adjacent store on the 300 block of Lafayette, all of which occured from Nov 04 to Jan 05. The Utica Police Fleet Maintenance garage now occupies this site.

This whole block has been in the process of being torn down so consider this the first in a series ;-)

I promised him I would post his photo online so here is Sgt. Myers working extremely hard at his job, supervising the demolition *ducks, runs and hides*
