Denton Taylor drops a line to let us know that the crumbling building on 6th Avenue between 15th and 16th streets in the South Slope isn’t long for this world. A sidewalk shed has gone up around the house and demolition permits are on display. According to city records, the owner intends to build a four-family residence in its place. The vinyl siding covering the wood frame at 548 6th Avenue was removed from the house a couple months ago, and a few weeks ago a reader who lives nearby got in touch to say that he was worried the crumbling building might collapse.
