134-36 S. Solomon St. Owner Biff Burk has applied to demolish this Neoclassical Revival shotgun double residence to be replaced with a vacant lot.

I believe this is the house at the corner of S. Solomon and Cleveland. A few months ago, a neighbor saw some guys taking the floors, mantels, doors and windows. When she inquired, he said he used to live there and the owner was going to tear the place down and said he could have the components. Now we have the application to tear the house down to be replaced with an empty lot which, I suspect, will become parking for Burk and Associates. We will see more and more of this.
