Ambassador Cam, #3
Ambassador Hotel, 9/28/2005, 10:05 a.m.
Still slow going at the Ambassador demolition site, which is why we're pacing out our coverage of the hotel's demise. (We've heard from several of you though, and promise to update you more frequently in the coming weeks.)
I'm assuming the lengthy tear down has to do with all of the toxic materials likely found in the asbestos-riffic building. (I heard at the auction earlier this month that several hotel fixtures couldn't be sold because of contamination fears.) As you can see above, the center steeple has been almost completely torn down at this point, and the roof tiles continue to disappear. More to come...
