An abandoned flood-damaged house on Binghamton’s South Side has been torn down, the first of eighteen structures to be demolished over the next several weeks.

The building on Baltimore Avenue was taken down Monday by crews working for Johnson City-based All-Around Excavating.

The demolition debris was transported to the Broome County Landfill for disposal.

Air sampling devices were set up around the site to monitor for the presence of asbestos. Similar monitoring will be done at some of the other demolition sites throughout the city. Each building to be torn down has been tested for the presence of asbestos.

The $213,200 contract for the work was awarded last month.

The next house scheduled to be demolished is at 9 Duke Street, less than a block away from the site of Monday’s work.

The demolition project is being done under a Federal Emergency Management Agency buyout program launched following the 2011 flood.
