I guess it is now official, the Perez Administration's attempts at historic "preservation" are a failure.

In what was supposed to be the stately new entrance to Hartford's Public Safety Complex now lies a pile of bricks and debris. Due to what many have called an act of incompetence, the attempts to preserve the 1800"s era school building have resulted in the collapse and eventual demolition of the buildings shell.

You can read my previous posting "The Perez Legacy of Incompetence Continues" by clicking here.

The picture above serves as a testament to the acts of the Perez Administration

Only two parts of the wall from the southwest corner of the building now remain.

There are no estimates available at this time as to what additional costs are now added to the project for demolition and re-design of the building, a project that was never fully funded to begin with.

Yet another example of why I am so glad that we are moving out of Hartford. Sick and tired of having my tax money thrown away on stuff like this, sick of my street which has become an open air drug market day and night and completely and total worn from out trying to fight the against inevitable destruction of this city

I feel for you Robin and understand what you're talking about.

Frankly I don't know how Brookman and his allies do it. I have a lot of respect for people who choose to fight the good fight at such tremendous odds.

First order of business when Eddie an his gang are removed should be an all out war on crime. Without a civil environment nothing can thrive.

Geez, I hope that they are at least going to sell the old bricks and recupe some $ off of this blunder.
