For over 50 years a small cluster of triple deck houses stood their ground on this odd triangle of land created by the Route C1 overpass (in the background), the Wood Island subway station (to the right), and Logan Airport (behind the camera). Slowly, one by one, they were bought up the and demolished by Massport, the agency that manages the airport. Last fall, the second to last house disappeared between my visits to Boston, miraculously replaced by a tidy plot of grass. Now just one remains.

I hope they keep it. In our small town there are almost no old buildings left.

What a great old house!!! It always bothered me how Massport has bulldozed these historic neighborhoods. Amazing that this one is still standing..but you and I both know that it won't last long. Thanks for this!!!

It's a shame when landmarks like this get torn down...good capture in fantastic light.

Such a tidy and interesting home. I'm surprised emanate domain didn't force them out.

so odd the way you leave isolated houses like this in the US, vacant lots all over the place. makes for a good shot though!
