Wrecking Cincinnati, 5/13/10

2611 Beekman Street, North Fairmount
DOB: 1895
Died: May 2009
Cause of death: A dangerous front porch, defective chimney, broken and missing windows, missing siding, and cracked and deteriorating steps and walkways. The property had been vacant since at least 2005.

The house was condemned in September 2006, declared a public nuisance in December 2006, and razed by the City following asbestos abatement.

A criminal case was signed, but it appears that nobody could track down the owner of this building – or the owner failed to take responsibility. Ownership was likely lost in the foreclosure shuffle.
