2648 Penn Ave Demolished Today

2748 Penn Ave N Demolished

2648 Penn Ave N Demolished

I heard the sound and recognized it immediately.  It was the slam, slam, crash of the bulldozer.  I looked out the window, and there it was:  The big yellow machine chomping its way through 2648 Penn Ave N.  This property was one of the last really bad properties around 27th and Penn.  There are still other problem properties, but this was one of those that was literally filled with a number of drug dealers and prostitutes.  When it was boarded up, people broke in and continued to ply their trade from this address.  Then one day, there was a fire, and things finally slowed down.  Now it’s gone.  Something inside relaxes a little more.
