Off to the landfill...

While chatting with Rod McCallum - Queen City Farm and Michael Gainer - Buffalo Reuse this week they were both mentioning that demolition activity was picking up.

They were right.

The other morning I snapped this pic of two City owned houses on Michigan Avenue near Northampton being prepped for the landfill. Went back a few days later and noticed this, left behind. Many demoliton sites that I've visited over the years have the odd children's toy still kicking. This tin drum from the Wollenberg site is my favorite and is coupled with an equally prescient line from G√ľnter Grass.
