Today construction workers tore into the late 1800's building that most recently housed the M.J. Higgins gallery. By the end of the day only the very front of the concrete structure was left standing, the infamous basement buried under rubble.

The site was taken by the city to be site of the new LAPD Motorpool, a move that was not well received in the Downtown community. Today's knockdown marked the symbolic end of a long fight to save the building.
