Demolition Begins On "Butt-Ugly" Building

The long awaited demolition of the "Butt-Ugly" started Wednesday at 4PM. Long an object of scorn and contention, the eyesore will finally be removed from the city landscape. Mayor Segarra and many news outlets were on hand for this long awaited occasion. Sad City will always remember the Butt-Ugly building as a landmark alerting that they were near the bodega that "people they knew" would journey to in order to purchase 40 oz. bottles of Olde English 800. Videos and pics after the jump.
