Back in the day, they were tearing down so many smaller, charming houses in the area and replacing them with McMansions so often, we had a column called “Teardown of the Week.”
It never really stopped, but it did slow down. And now, this one’s really got us.
This info came to theLoop from local journalist Hilary Macht. A lovely old stone and shingle house (maybe 1500 square feet?) at 169 Rockingstone Ave. has reportedly been bought by a developer and she hears they are destroying it, and are putting in a 4500 square footer.
“Little by little neighborhood character and charm are being decimated– historic homes and big old trees, gone, turning the neighborhood into ultra-suburban clear-cut,” Hilary writes.
What do you think?
