Apartment building near museum razed

Drove by this yesterday and saw the demolition.

Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner looked on with contentment yesterday as a city bulldozer began knocking down the first "Dirty Dozen" property to be razed this year.

The boarded-up and dilapidated apartment building at 2640 Monroe St. was demolished after more than four years of court battles between the city and owner Omar Sadin, who was arrested in June, 2006, for failure to abate a public nuisance.
