Keep on smiling

17 Feb

Also while I was away the Council finally took a big deep breath and blew down the New York hotel, well maybe a JCB was involved, but anyway it’s gone leaving this impressive pile of bricks and dozens of homeless pigeons. The building had only been empty for fifteen years and in a state of terminal decay for nigh on eight so this is really quick stuff from HCC, verging on the impetuous. (maybe I should go away more often) The bill for demolition is thought to be well over £250,000 which the Council thinks it will get back from the owners … I think I know who is smiling after all this.

    The pigeons will find new quarters fast. There's a building here that was once a beauty, but terminal incompetence by the current owner has left it decrepit.
