Down Goes the Downtown Y!!!

Going down.
Driving past the downtown YMCA last night about 7 p.m., the sun was filtering through what had become an empty, windowless hulk.

Today there's even less of it.

The trucks have moved in and started the takedown of the building, which looks charming and is quirky enough inside to mourn, although supposedly it's so full of asbestos it could never be renovated in a financially feasible way.

The new Y, a couple of blocks away, has been open for months now, of course.

Swamplot has some more pictures, including this one from reader Joe Lex.
