A Sad Loss to the City...

author: Franny Wentzel : Schenectady, NY


image
A sad loss to the city was the destruction of a pair of apartment buildings downtown as seen in this Polaroid of the buildings I'd taken many moons ago... Emporis's image of the pair On the 6th of March one of the residents - a smoker - found his recliner had caught fire. He tried to drag it into the hall but it got stuck in the doorway. He managed to alert his neighbours but was killed in the blaze along with three others. The two buildings - nearly a century old - were a total loss. Demolition has commenced - incredibly, a resident's...

author: Franny Wentzel : Schenectady, NY


image
I'd been out walking after midnight when I heard the sound of cheeping baby birds... Investigating further and it seems some mamma bird has set up housekeeping in the rafters of a tire shop. Right on top of a fluorescent light strip. Artsey blur shot.

Storm Damage

author: Franny Wentzel : Schenectady, NY

Winds were blowing so hard I could feel a draught in my 'computer lab'. Looking outside to investigate... Looking left... Looking right... ...and behind me for good measure. But, where did all this come from? Oh.. The new owners had been gut-rehabbing this 1930s-era apartment house all summer. Some of the debris out back... They must've run out of windows - or money for them... because the upper floor had been sealed in that insulation stuff all winter. The view up the street... ...shows how easily that styrofoam can get airborne. It had been raining... ...so the owner can add water damage mitigation to his list of cleanup chores. Later in the evening, the...
