After years of doing nothing about neighborhood complaints about the unoccupied, decaying five-story building at 23 Upton St., city officials have given the go-ahead for 24-hour demolition and shoring-up work there following its partial collapse on Thursday. Liana Rogue reports from the block:
After ignoring a vacant building for decades with neighborhood complaints (until collapsed), the city and developers decided the residents of this south end block deserve no sleep ever. Safety first but does that include moving the trash @ 3am???
