We thought that demolition next door was taking place within a month or so, but have been told it'll more likely be in spring, with excavation/construction close (hmm) behind. This business has been hanging over our heads so long now, and we've alternated so frequently between sanguine & desperate moods, it'll almost be a relief when the process begins. Imagining what could happen is a miserable business, though reality may trump our pre-dawn powers of projection. We shall see. I have taken to looking out for survivors. These ones on Sixth are still standing, long after next-door demolition. Different construction, and maybe not such Siamese siblings as ours, but still offering a glimmer of hope.
