The city-owned building formerly known as Wings on the Water is no more. City Building Official Steve Smallwood sent the following pictures of the demolition, which happened this morning.
I offer three suggested soundtracks for viewing these photos:
- If you have fond memories of Wings, try this.
- If you think the city couldn’t knock the thing down fast enough, try this.
- If you think the city overpaid for the property, erred in shutting down a tax-paying business and shouldn’t be spending money to build a park right now, this is probably your speed.
