2210 Irving Avenue North Vanishes
I looked out the window this morning as I opened the blinds. The sun was coming up over the horizon in the east like it always does. Wait a minute… I’ve got a really nice view to the east. What is that? The empty field… It got bigger! It would appear that 2210 Irving is gone.

In the dead middle of winter, a demo crew came in and demolished that house. I didn’t even know they were there. The Ninjas of Domestic Demolition snuck in and POW! It’s almost as if they were never even there. I wish I could have seen it happen.

I just wanted to make sure my eyes weren’t playing tricks on me. I trekked over to the property. Boarded up 2200 Irving to the south of me, boarded up 2212 Irving to the north of me. Great! Just three more demos to go and we’ll be just like the Eco Village here at the Irving Triangle.

Since there are two back-to-back vacant lots in a row now, maybe we can do something nice with them? How about urban gardens or a tree nursery? It would be something nice to look for a change.
