September 22, 2010. This was the day that the demolition of the Tower Automotive chimney on Sterling Rd. finally began.
I dropped by the site for a final look on my way to work, and saw them move some of the equipment in. I couldn't stick around for very long though, so I didn't get to see very much of the demo. I went by again on my way home from work and the chimney was only half-gone, and still being slowly chipped away by the demolition machines. Small crowds of people were stopped on the Railpath and Perth Ave. to watch as this thing slowly come down.
Some people were disappointed that it wasn't taken down in one big blast of dynamite. That would have been cool to watch, but it's way too close to peoples' homes.
They actually halted the demolition at around 6:30pm, shortly after I took this photo, and then finished the job the following day.
