Revisited the forge with my friend Ted Roth on March 25 after the long winter break. The demolition has started, workman in their bright yellow jackets and hardhats are walking around and a huge machine is taking apart one of the buildings one piece at a time. Met a few people who used to work in the Forge ( it was one of the biggest employer of the Town) and they all had bitter sweet feelings about the slow disappearance of the place. While they have many fond memories, they all think that the demolition is well needed, the place is just an eye sore for them, good for scrap metal and nostalgic photography, but not much else. I wonder what will replace the buildings ?
