Click here for my discussion of residential demolitions on WBFO’s Press pass (with Eileen Buckley).
Photo of 557 East Utica by David Torke
July’s Preservation Ready article, "Shopping the demo list," had an interesting response. Last week, a Spree reader called me to ask if we could send a photographer to 557 East Utica to document this beautiful Victorian home before its imminent demolition. The reader, Marja Nordman, lives across the street and is finishing the restoration of a similar house.
Thanks to preservation activist David Torke, 557 will be spared for at least one more month while a search possible buyers continues. Read his post to find out the whole story.
