I've never seen the inside before. Very interesting piece of history.

That's pretty interesting! Pictures 15 and 23 (according to the address bar) makes me question the structural integrity of the concrete, though. It looks like the thin horizontal beams and the floors themselves are eroding a little at the edges.

I've been inside twice and everything inside is pretty stout.  The concrete chipping at the edges is really minor.

Those photos are very old. 3 years according to the album. (Confirmed by a lack of "Avenue of Light" out front.)

 

No telling how much deterioration these past few winters have caused.

I'm sure there has been some continued deterioration; however, buildings of this size and of this construction type are built to last.  I'm doubting that in three years there has been enough damage to warrant demolition.  I would be willing to bet that a structural engineer has looked at it and has told the owner how long she could wait before she would be forced to renovate it.
