Photo of the Day – Demolition Day

January 5, 2010

The old University Apartments at the University of Massachusetts Amherst are laying down to rest.

I caught some of the demolition on Butterfield Terrace today.

The Butterfield Terrace side of the apartments being torn down.

The apartments remained in use for many years despite the building being condemned and a safety hazard, according to a Massachusetts Daily Collegian article.

Parking lot 52 will be expanded into this area.

Here’s a high quality video posted on my Flickr.

Here’s a low quality video I shot on Vimeo.

Stay tuned, I have more photos tomorrow!
