I walked through there last night 11/13 and it is very dark for the length of the street. The street lights are new, but not a single one of them were on.
Loose bricks were slathered over with mortar. There is zero indication that the work was done by somebody with any understanding of masonry, let alone historic masonry. This kind if botched repair work can actually accelerate damage and deterioration if hard mortar is used in conjunction with softer, late 19th-early 20th century bricks. This is exactly the sort of slipshod sub-standard work that has been done on this property for at least half a decade.
Time was approximately 2:00 PM on Monday, June 24
Loose bricks and missing mortar
Missing gutter and ghost of missing downspout
Masonry deterioration (due to damaged gutter/downspout) on west side of building is dangerously advanced. A building on nearby Putnam Street was recently destroyed due to similar neglect. The few repairs ever done to this property have been to a low standard and likely not done to code. Snow clearing was regularly neglected in winter for years.
13 windows were open last Sunday morning when temps were in the single digits.
Now, Saturday, January 21, fewer windows are open, but the ones in the initial photo and one nearby them on the inside corner (southwest side) of the school are still open. These windows have been open continuously since December.
I remember when the U-Haul truck fell through this. That was a long time ago.
