Scenes from the hood
This piece of machinery parked in front of the lone retained house has produced changes in our house too since its noise and vibrations have made Bean a nut-case (OK, a worse one) who can't resist shredding plastic and eating used dental floss. All the houses but one between Quarry St. and Valentine Place have been removed and foundations are started on the new buildings. The red-roofed building will stay due to its historic record of an early Ithaca Hospital. Look closely for the smokestack, the old boiler building has apartments that perch over an 80' cliff. The rectangular building with a square of red roof is new so it stays, but the long apartment buildings to the right, built in 1996 will be removed.
