Photo: Demolition of Bethlehem Steel Administration Building begins

Bethlehem Steel demo1
An excavator smashed the ornate facade of the Bethlehem Steel Administration Building Friday, a day after an Appeals Court judge rejected Campaign for Greater Buffalo’s attempt for a temporary restraining order to halt demolition. Preservationists have for months sought to save the 1901 Beaux Arts-style building, but in the end could not convince Lackawanna Mayor Geoff Szymanski, who went to court to get a demolition order, or Gateway Trade Center, the building’s owner, to reverse course.
