Demo Starts for Wooden House on Smith Street

Demo started Friday for the crumbling wood clad house on Smith Street, neighborhood blog Pardon Me For Asking reported. As you may recall, the three-story mixed-use building at 159 Smith Street between Wyckoff and Bergen recently filed permits for a two-story addition, and PMFA feared its intact facade would soon meet the wrecking ball.

No permits have been filed for complete demolition of the building, meaning that the foundation and party walls or some other aspect of the building could be preserved. The house stood for over a hundred years and retained its cornice and the detail around the windows.
