McKeesport apartment building condemned; tenants forced out


CONDEMNED AND IS COMING DOWN
TODAY. DAVID: THIS BUILDING WAS
CONDEMNED YESTERDAY. YOU CAN SEE CAUTION TAPE AS PART
OF IT. NEIGHBORS ALLOWED TO MOVE THEIR
STUFF OUT, BUT TAKE A CLOSE
LOOK. YOU CAN SEE BOWING IN THE MIDDLE
OF THE BUILDING, PART OF THE
REASON PEOPLE NEED TO GET OUT. J BROWN HAS — JAY BROWN HAS
LIVED HERE ON THE 2400 BLOCK IN
MCKEESPORT FOR A WHILE. JAY BROWN: TWO AND A HALF YEARS. DAVID: IT WAS A TEXT IN THE
MIDDLE OF THE DAY THAT RUINED
THINGS. THE TEXT — HE NEEDS TO PACK UP
HIS THINGS AND LEAVE, THE
BUILDING, CONDEMNED. JAY BROWN: I HAD TO COME HERE. LEAVE WORK EARLY. FIGURE OUT WHAT WE WERE DOING. LUCKILY, WE GOT IN THIS PLACE
OVER HERE. DAVID: AS CREWS PREPARED TO
DEMOLISH THE BUILDING, BROWN WAS
MOVING INTO THE HOUSE NEXT DOOR,
WHICH JUST SO HAPPENED TO BE
FOR RENT. JAY BROWN: I’M STILL TRYING TO
TAKE IT IN, BECAUSE I DON’T FEEL
LIKE I FULLY GRASPED WHAT
HAPPENED JUST YE
I FEEL LIKE IT WAS GET OUT. FIND SOMEWHERE, WHO CARES. DAVID: THE DECISION TO CONDEMN
THIS BUILDING HAPPENED AFTER
NEIGHBORS SAID THEY WERE WORRIED
ABOUT IT. RESIDENTS WILL HAVE A FEW MORE
HOURS TO GET EVERYTHING THEY
NEED OUT OF THE BUILDING. STILL NO EXACT WORD ON WHEN THE
BUILDING WILL COME DOWN. IT COULD BE AS EARLY AS TODAY. I’M ALSO TOLD BY OFFICIALS IN
MCKEESPORT THAT THE OWNER OF
THIS BUILDING
