WOONSOCKET â The scorched shell of a triple-decker opposite Landmark Medical Center has a date with the wreckerâs ball today, the latest target of Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Huntâs campaign to rid the city of a group of residential eyesores branded the Dirty Thirty.
The demolition of 40 Dulude Ave. is the second house to be torn down since the effort was announced several weeks ago. A third on South Main Street, also damaged by fire, was partially razed; the owners intend to fix up the house after having removed the third story, according to Baldelli-Hunt.
The last time Patrick Nassaney visited the World Trade Center site in New York was the fall of 2002, the first anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. A year after two planes struck the twin towers, killing nearly 3,000 people, ground zero was still a disaster site and debris field when Nassaney and other 9/11 families gathered to pay tribute to the victims 12 years ago.
âWe havenât returned since for a lot of reasons,â says Nassaney, who lost his son, Shawn M. Nassaney, in the attacks. âWhen we were there it was a big crater. Now, itâs hallowed grounds.â
