This big old building is technically 2 doors down from our house. OK, that includes crossing a street, so 2 doors & a street.
It's full of asbestos and overcrowded with prisoners on the top floors. They had hoped to sell it, but now it looks like demolition will be the resolution.
On the one hand: Hurray for better use and/or a better-looking building.
On the other: Better use, better looking will increase our property value and our taxes.
Like my mom always says: you can't have it all.
