It looks like Wilshire Village, that strange, 1940s apartment complex on West Alabama and Dulavy, is finally facing the wrecking ball.
Based on what we've observed so far, the demolition is still in the foreplay stages -- a little sidewalk-breakin', some strategically blown-out windows (safety first!), sleepy-looking dudes in orange vests guiding huge dump trucks into the parking lot -- but we'll keep watching for when the real destruction goes down.
