Livery Stable Collapse Part II
The city began demolition of the Livery Stable today, stopping several hours later due to a court injunction from nearby residents. That means everything is up in the air again. While saving the building is far from likely--it's missing a good chunk of its roof now--activists are also concentrating efforts against the slumlord who let this happen. A meeting/press conference is scheduled for Sunday afternoon. This is something I'd like to follow up on.
Neighbors have been using a twisted sense of humor against Freudenheim's poor property management.
What do you do with a unique, irreplaceable, historic building?
Meanwhile, here's a generic photo of today's Allentown Art Festival.
