Last walls standing at Sunset Bowl

Demolition crews have been hard at work on Saturday, tearing apart the last remnants of Sunset Bowl. Only the southern and western walls remain.

Three excavators are taking part in the demolition.

They’re tearing the debris into smaller pieces for trucks to haul away.

Crews appear to be saving some of the larger beams.

A small crowd watched the demolition work through the chain-link fence.

A worker at the site told us they’ll be taking Sunday off and resuming work on Monday. The last two walls will come down early to middle of next week.

It's gonna be a nice hole in the ground! Looking forward to that hole coming soon to a nice neighborhood near us all. They still have a hole on Stone where Safeway once sat too. I wonder just where it rates on the hole charts/graphs? The fire station is starting to look very outdated and smallish too now, dontcha all think? At least I can STILL bowl on my Wii.

Maybe they could set up a lawn bowling area until the construction starts.

Are the Geeky Swedes rubbing salt into the wounds of the natives?

Beautiful pictures, you guys. Very evocative. They capture the feelings of the people watching.

Don't think of it as a “hole in the ground,” think of it as “urban open space.”

I was standing there watching while GS was taking photos. Got a nose full of bowling alley, hopefully minus the asbestos. There's something creepy about a building being torn down but it's an interesting process to see.
