    Lets hope so! If this was NYC, that dump would have been leveled a long time ago.

    It is blighted property and irretrievable. With all due respect, the owner likely has mental problems and has an unhealthy attachment to this building he has been letting rot. If the city does not demolish it, then shame on the city.

    strange story, the owner was a stubborn holdout. according to the tax records it was sold in 2007 for about 775k to "ams blue skies llc" (?! is blue sky a popular name or what?) and they never paid taxes (orig owner did, just always late)…the city has been charging the vacant rate since about 2006 and the balance now sits at 114k! let see if that disappears ala bible way's 2 mil bill that went up in smoke.

    This guy is a moron. If I remember correctly he turned down a 1+ million dollar offer from the developer when the Dumont and the office building next door. He refused and forced them to build around his lot so he could open his pizza shop. No those buildings sit empty and he has to feel like the biggest arse in DC next to Marion Barry.

    I think it was way more than 1 million..possibly closer to 10. It was the last parcel the developer needed to assemble in order to build that office building to the left. There was a big Post article on it. I remember thinking "How many pizzas is he going to have to sell to make up for the cash he just missed out on?"

    Looks like there may be a new property owner. I met with two gentlemen this morning that tell me they have the property under contract and plan on knocking down the existing structure. FINALLY!
