The former Deutsche Bank office at 130 Liberty Street is almost completely demolished, after nearly 10 years of legal entanglements and devastating accidents, according to the Brooklyn Eagle. The building, which sustained significant damage during the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, was supposed to be deconstructed in 2005 — a piece of debris from the World Trade Center collapse had torn through 15-stories of the building. But the demolition was put on hold after a legal battle erupted over who would pay for the $300 million project. Later issues, such as the removal of asbestos, lead, mercury and more than 700 body parts from Sept. 11 victims, slowed the process. And, in 2007, a fire started by a construction worker’s old cigarette ripped through 130 Liberty Street, causing the death of two firefighters who arrived on the scene. According to some local residents, such as Mary Perillo, the building had become a blight on the neighborhood. “I love having that black monolith out of my face,” Perillo said. [Brooklyn Eagle]
