Demolition of the Shore Theatre started in the first week of January, 2006. Over the course of the last three weeks Bernard of American Demolition Company methodically tore down and dissected the dilapidated theatre with the skills of a surgeon - picking his way from the back of the Shore toward Atlantic Avenue. The finale came this past Friday morning with the toppling of the theatres marquee. Many days I left my job early and at times took off the entire day to record the event and can tell you it was dramatic and quite heartbreaking... no need to say more - the following photos say it all.
