King Fuel's photo shoot

TROY — The Troy Local Development Corporation arranged for photos to be taken this week in order to document two historic buildings at the King Fuel's site which are slated for emergency demolition.

The LDC chose to work with P. Thomas Carroll, the executive director of the Hudson Mohawk Industrial Gateway, after he raised the issue that the buildings should be documented before they are gone.

The photographer was a representative of the Historic American Engineering Record and was at the site Sunday and Monday to document its remaining historical aspects.

Demolition is slated to begin Wednesday and is expected to continue for nine weeks.

Does anyone else find it suspect that after the city's bungled attempt to solicit bids for demolition of the complex, they now resort to "emergency" declarations at a fraction of the cost? The real question is will the mess of asbestos and other hazardous materials that infest these structures be removed or just "used to fill shaftways and other areas of the site" as quoted in the newspaper. Perhaps the proper environmental authorities can provide the proper oversight.

What a great historical city Troy was till the Republicans took over. They are destroying our heritage under the the word progress. Progress would have been if they had restored rather then destroyed our buildings and roads. Troy could have been a world class city not unlike Rome if the City officials had some foresight and imagination.

What someone should look into is how that dog park recently just appeared -- on city property -- without city approval.

What about the late 1970's and the Grimm factor as well as all his Dem friends that demolished all the beautiful city buildings to build that piece of crap the "Atrium." That project did extreme damage to Troy's historic vitality.
Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

Harry, that was not nice to say about the Grimms! When you are gone, the City will once again prosper. We can't wait!
