My Fav part of Swamplot is probably the Daily Demo Report. I’ve said this in the past but a 2018 google map showing a running total of all demos would be a pretty cool thing to see, especially at the end of the year.
Did the pictured house flood? It’s gorgeous, so I’m wondering what’s going on here.
Almost certainly didn’t flood. It just doesn’t meet the desires of the current wealthy. Too small and old-fashioned. I love the old home but it will likely be replaced by a massive McMansion that fills up the 9000 sq ft lot.
I thought they didn’t allow McMansions in RO: too nouveau riche. Though it is true, the OLD money lives in Shadyside and various points north.
