The tallest of the buildings being demolished on Lawrence Avenue, known previously as the Boiler Room, finally had the top floor removed yesterday.
The building was structured with large steel beams that had to be carefully removed before it was able to be torn down to the same level as the other two old storefronts.
Police cruisers blocked off a small portion of Lawrence Avenue to prepare for the collapse in case any debris fell into the roadway, none of which did.
Construction workers estimate the buildings will be completely demolished in the next few days and clean up of the lots will commence.

Here’s a front and back view of what the remainder of the buildings look like as of earlier today.
