Farewell to The Boxcar

While it may have been an eyesore recently, it was once a popular restaurant and it was certainly an interesting building. I took some pictures of The Boxcar back in 2003 and speculated on its future. Its future seems to have arrived.

Though the workmen I spoke to wouldn't say what the building was going to become, they did let me take some pictures of the interior during the demolition, so you can see the undersides of the boxcars. I also took some pictures of the demolition in progress and the final debris field (now cleaned up), and put them together in a gallery.
