Rudy's may be coming down soon (just a guess)
« on: July 25, 2022, 11:12:32 AM »
I was driving on Anderson St last Friday and noticed this demolition work (it was hard to miss). I parked, ran over and took some PANO shots.

Rudy's is still standing, but it appears to be next. I took the third picture because it may be the last one I take of that building (unless someone lets me know when it's scheduled to come down.............if it hasn't already been demolished).

everything from the brick tenement to the tracks is going away, except apparently the white building next to the tracks.

Yesterday morning felt like it should be the day Rudy's comes down. I drove over there around 9:15am and was told that it would be coming down within the hour. I came back an hour later, thinking I was too late............the building was still standing.

"What's the problem?"

"Is that your car?", the worker asked, pointing to an Escalade parked right in front.

"No."

"Well, we can't do anything until that car is moved."

Apparently, no one thought to put up "Emergency - No Parking" signs in front of Rudy's. I couldn't get back there until 4 hours after that (2:15pm). The building was still standing, the equipment was parked over to the side and I didn't see any workers.

I went back at 10:15 this morning, SURE that the building MUST be down by now.

Uh-uh...........

Rudy's - the building that wouldn't die (and I think I know who the Escalade belongs to).

Don't know when it happened and you can see that part of it is still untouched.
