Left Behind on N. 10th

Left Behind

The buildings at 208 N. 10th Street, which is part of a larger site that will encompass about 1/2 of the block between Roebling and Driggs and N. 10th and N. 9th Streets, are coming down. The fence is back up, so we had to peek inside to find a little bit of what's been left behind as the buildings come down. These are clearly old oil or chemical drums. (Or the more benign explanation is that they were water barrels or contained popcorn.) Regardless it's interesting to see. A huge condo project will rise on the site, which is the next door neighbor of the Roebling Oil Field.
