The view from Washington Boulevard.
There's not much activity here yet, with the exception of the removal of some of the Coleman Young era awnings.
On the Bagley Avenue side, an elevator has been erected.
The Statler from the Tuller lot. Soon the Statler will be another gaping hole in the city's urban fabric.

The view from Times Square. You can see where crews removed many of the windows in the 1916 addition.
The view from Clifford and Bagley
The Bagley Avenue side
The Statler from Park and Adams
Not much is visible from this angle, but that will surely change over the next week or so.
Crews are just over half done removing the windows from the Washington side.

Those pictures are truly sad. I'll swing by and pay my respects tomorrow during lunch.

Whatever happened to building that plywood enclosure over the people mover? I guess they decided it would be more cost effective to just let the bricks fall on the track. After all, it's no big deal if the people mover doesn't run during the Super Bowl, right?
If I had it my way I'd be living downtown (and hence able to get photos of the day by day progress), but there aren't really many options for downtown living. It looks like midtown is my best bet. </hijack>

When Boston's Statler Hilton closed in the late 1970s, a local group quickly bought it and reopened it as the Boston Park Plaza. It's still open today and quite popular.
