Four years today, workers contracted by the family of Assembly Member and Assistant City Solicitor, Michael Tarro attempted the illegal demolition of the Grove Street School on Federal Hill. The owners had no demolition permit and a stop work order was in place. But on a cold weekend morning, crews came out to try to tear the building down. Neighbors alerted police and the Mayor and the demollition stopped.
Since then, the building has stood with a gaping wound in its side, while the Tarro family has ignored repeated court orders to secure the building, and repeated offers from others to buy it from them.
