Main Street Demolition
As it looked in November, 2003
It's been a long journey from 2003 to 2007 in the look of Main Street as the pictures above illustrate. The top photo shows the current situation while the middle photo shows what it looked like before the final phase of demolition was completed. The bottom photo shows the back side of Main Street from November, 2003 when the wrecker's ball took the first chunk out of the back side of the first building to come down. The pictures were all taken from the flood control wall (Now the derby Greenway!) along the Housatonic River. Click on any of the images for a larger view.

You can see the downton from the top of City Hall time on the Derby webcam!
