Wrecking Cincinnati, 12/7/09

3922 River Road, Riverside
DOB: 1882
Died: May 2009
Cause of death: Damage from a 2004 fire, missing windows and siding, lack of utilities, trash and debris. The property required City barricading on several occasions.

Vacated by the City in 2005, it appears that some work was done to fix the fire damage, but work eventually stalled. The utilities were never hooked up. The listed owner was a no-show for pre-prosecution hearings, and a criminal case was never filed due to the inability to find him.

It was condemned in February 2007 and declared a public nuisance in October of the same year. The building was razed by the City.
