The time has come for the Arts and Crafts school to fall to the wrecking machines.
Many thanks to Aram for alerting me to the start of this historic demolition.
Most of the building should be gone by late Friday.
The SUPERBOWLXL logo laden Renaissance Center seems to be leering over the destruction as Arts and Crafts meets its last days after almost one hundred years.
After fire, vandalism, graffiti and abandonment from its offspring CCS/CAD – the time has finally come. I have strong but mixed feelings about the loss of this historic Detroit treasure. It sat for so long in such a undignified and humiliating condition, I have to say I am glad to see it put down.
Rest easy old girl.
Somewhere out there tonight James E. Scripps, Mary Chase Perry Stratton, William “Buck” Stratton and Sarkis Sarkisian are turning uncomfortably in their graves.
