Strangely enough, just a few days after I posted a photo of the Brush park "castle" (also known as the Luben Apartment Building) and wrote about what a wreck it was inside, a suspicious fire broke out in the building and within a few hours demolition crews were there to level it. In a city filled with corrupt politicians and greedy demolition contractors, theories abound about how quickly this happened (before preservationists could even rally to save the facade). It's a huge loss to the neighborhood and the city.
