    They couldn't save Danvers, Foxboro, NoHo, Taunton, Pennhurst, Worcester or Met. This will be no different.

    Who has a set from this place? If its the place I'm thinking of, we may be better off without it anyways...

    Danvers wasnt a total loss, and the fate of Pennhurst is far from sealed.

    Other places have been saved, at least partially.
    Edgewater Psych, Western Center's admin, Traverse City State Hospital, Weston State Hospital. Outside of hospitals you have Eastern State Pen and Chester Power Station, the powerplant in the inner harbor. Some places can be saved, some cant, but nothing is going to happen if you dont try.

    Yea I signed that thing a few days ago... I told the girl, Dana, it was prob a waste of time. But yea, from pictures I've seen, the place is NJ's "Henryton," if not worse. Unfortunate...

    Exactly, things are actually looking very good at least for Pennhurst's Admin building. Hopefully it can be saved. It's a damn shame that preservation is just not considered typically with historic structures.

    Is that so? Im not too informed on anything going on that side of the state despite plans to vist it that never get fully formed.

    Whats the deal with it? Developer changing his plans or what? It would b to bad, its a nice looking building.

    Well i think they are doin things a tad on the illegal side, the Med building was down in a week, last time i was in it they only had floors 7,6 abated, and parts of 5 i think. The Gym, school and admin were supose to be not demoed, i drove by a week or so ago, and everything is pritty much demoed except the Admin. I know those guys who are demoing want the copper off the spire real bad, so i dont think its gunna get saved

    You think they wouldnt care about the copper so much with scrap down as low as it is. It pisses me off how developers get off scot-free with all these illegal demos they do.
