Grove Street School partial demolition

In Buildings by Jef Nickerson3 Comments

Another week another illegal demolition in Greater Providence…

Contractors showed up at the site of the Grove Street School early yesterday morning and began an illegal demolition. Neighbors alerted the authorities and the demolition was halted. Currently a Providence Police detail is guarding the building. More commentary later, but for now here are some photos of the site.

  3. 59 – 63 we had nuclear drills and I a 2nd or 3rd grader did not like the condition of the foundation then.

    I am sure it didn’t get better.
