Wrecking Cincinnati, 9/5/08

4050 Colerain Avenue, Northside
DOB: 1865
Died: August 2008
Cause of death: A failing porch roof and supports, a deteriorating chimney, and cracks in the foundation. Portions of the building collapsed.

Originally targeted during the Northside Neighborhood Enhancement Program blitz in October 2007, it was condemned two months later.

After weighing the costs of rehabiliation and demolition, the owner chose the latter. The house was razed privately.
