Shovel Ready

In Chatham and Madison, New Jersey, as in many other parts of the country, developers clamor to get their hands on properties in desirable neighborhoods, frequently buying up sturdy, well-built homes like this one only to tear them down and replace them with more cheaply constructed but substantially larger dwellings. Judging by the effort that is going into razing this building, I suspect that it was constructed at a time when people over-built, going for stout, strong and durable. The house that will replace this will probably much bigger and rather flimsy. Such is progress.
