It Wasn’t Built in a Day…

…so I guess I can see why it would take more than a day to demolish the Phi Delta Theta house. When I took a few photos of the beginning of the demolition on Thursday morning, I thought that the whole house would be rubble by the end of the day. I was wrong. (And, in retrospect, I now remember Physical Plant spokesperson Paul Ruskin ’69, ’71g telling me that the demolition was scheduled to take the better part of a week.)

The photo above shows the state of things as of Saturday morning around 9:00 a.m. On the left-hand side of the image (click to see the photo bigger) you can see some of the pillars that once graced the front porch of the fraternity. For a comparison shot, see this photo I took in February of 2009.
