i was just down there scouting out a place to watch, and if it isnt blocked off, there is a huge 10 story parking deck on the corner of 4th Ave South and Richard Arrington. i think if i get there early enough, ill be able to watch.

I heard that there is a high likelihood that the building, due to its longstanding vacancy and structure itself, has a high asbestos content. I believe that may mean that the demolition company will have to take that into consideration by passing out masks to folks around that area. That stuff probably lingers in the air.

If anyone knows anyone that lives or works for the realty company in the condos across the street that would be the best viewing area by far!

Based on what I currently know, there won't be a great spot to watch for the general public as most of the streets will be blocked off at 6 .a.m. If anyone's got better ideas, I'm thinking we're all ears.

Is there somewhere one could go to take photographs or video? I'd love to get a video of the event.

Any suggestions on a good place to watch? Liberty National parking deck? Skywalkway at Kirklin Clinic?
