Years ago, I had to go to that building for something. As I climbed the steps I was aew-struck at hoe beautiful its interior was. Gold handrails and polished greaming white walls, with tiny black specles set into the ceremic-looking walls, with its tile flooring. It seems ashame to bulldoze such a beatiful all brick building. I have seen nothing made in the last 25 years that could compare to the way this fortress was built.

I agree, it is a shame, it was a beautiful building, although it had been allowed to fall into disrepair. Also, they list the price as $1.75 million, but I believe the town gave back $500,000 for asbestos removal, so the net would be $1.25 million. It would be great if the sale number shown could be the true net, so that everyone has a clear idea of the deal. I am hoping that this is a clear and transparent process, with the Village of Maplewood the primary concern, but the fact that they did not reveal the price until the deal was done makes me wonder.
