Police barricaded one lane of Fifth Ave. and sidewalks on both the Ann and Fifth Ave. sides. The building had been condemned and vacated since Aug. 7, 1970. The city is seeking a court order to demolish it. (Story on Page 3)

In the wake of a court order to demolish the Town House Hotel, a contractor finished a process which started when the northeast corner of the three-story vacated building collapsed on June 13. At that time debris from the hotel, which was built in 1845, fell on a house but no one was hurt. The structure had been condemned and vacated since Aug. 7, 1970. Razing work was in progress yesterday. (News Photo by Jack Stubbs.)
