February 22, 2006:
From unbuilding to rebuilding: between Meeting St and East Bay St

Walking back from the Sea Breeze Marina - I happened upon the rebuilding between Meeting St and East Bay. So I stopped, took a few reference photos and here is the story.

At the east end of Lee St - where the Grace off ramp used to roller-coaster you

At America St - from a distance

Looking closer, new storm pipes are being installed

Looking down Lee St - all rebuilding this neighborhood

More storm lines

At Nassau St - more rebuilding

and just a few steps south - more rebuilding

And from Meeting St. more rebuilding. Its everywhere and this neighborhood is going to escape the hidded village buried under the old Grace and Pearman access ramps
