"People come by, and they'll want a brick off the building. They'll want one last stroll through where they used to live or play as a kid," he said. "Demolition has a lot of nostalgia to it." But this time, the nostalgia is his own. What one man's construction firm helped build, his great-grandson's construction firm is set to destroy.
