A small piece of an Endwell neighborhood's history has disappeared with the removal of a structure that had housed a series of taverns over the years.
The building at 3109 Watson Boulevard had been home to the Endwell Pub for a time. After that, it was briefly occupied by establishments known as Braintree and Watson Pub.
Gorick Construction crews quickly tore down the building on Monday.
Before the Endwell Pub opened at the site, the property was used as a single-family residence.
The town of Union Local Development Corporation approved a grant of about $12,000 to cover most of the cost of demolishing the vacant building.
Property owner Robert Salamida in 1984 proposed constructing a multi-unit apartment building on the site but that project didn't go forward.
Now that the existing structure has been removed and the lot is being cleared, Salamida is considering his options for the property. He told WNBF News he hasn't made a decision on what might be done with the site.
A neighbor said the unused building had become a nuisance in recent years with unauthorized people holding parties or sleeping inside the place. He was pleased the structure was gone. He said: "I think it's awesome... It'll improve the neighborhood."

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State
To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
