Friday/ dilapidated house – no more

  1. (of a building or object) in a state of disrepair or ruin as a result of age or neglect.

This empty house on the corner of 16th Ave E and Thomas St here on Capitol Hill is by the bus stop for the No 8 and No 43 bus (that I take sometimes), and so I had known since May that its days were numbered.   Still, I was a little shocked to see the house all broken down when I walked by tonight.   Built in 1900, it held out until now – but was in such disrepair that it was simply time to break it down and build something new in its place.
