I asked one of the workers in front of the house and he said someone was going to fix up that house and the rooming house next door. Don't know if it's true."
  • March 10, 2024 - Joe Herzlichwillkommen on Facebook: "It was purchased going on three years ago this July, after a decade of neglect by Nick Sinatra and then further neglect and a demo attempt by Nicholas Castine of Williamsville. There seemed to be some work in the basement going on, a large hole was dug next to the foundation. However the roof continues to deteriorate in the front building, completely collapsed in the rear. I haven't noticed any attempt to secure the building from collapsing further."
