    Any updates? I have been digging around but haven't seen anything since watching the light post take a tumble.

    Are they taking down all the light poles? What will they do about the street next to the pressbox?

    D-9 with a three shank ripper. Maybe just a hoe. Plans show a new alignment curving around the new pressbox.

    I lived there too. Usually only one elevator worked in Nielson and sometimes, no elevators were working. It was a lond climb up the stairs to the 6th floor!

    I was on the 6th floor, too, 1968-1969. Right by the non-working elevators.

    Sixth floor, 1982, first room to your left as you stepped off elevator, and yes it was a long climb that we seemed to have to make all to often. Those two dorms were an eyesore, looked more like something out of Russian housing system.

    I noticed today that they started tearing the pressbox from the wooden walls on the back. How long will it take for the rest to come down?

    10th floor for three years... yeah, that climb could be rough. That and the heat between switching the systems over. Wouldn't trade those years for anything, though.

    I lived a year on Nielson penthouse with the elevator working about half of the time. Don't think I have much memory with it except for one incident when the RA called up the floor meeting for someone took a big dump in one of the shower
