"It had been standing vacant in Olneyville for about three weeks, after the last tenant had moved out. Then one day a half-dozen young people came and ripped, smashed and generally tore it apart--the windows, doors and even the aluminum siding. Although the police were called, the vandals got away, and another house became a victim to city living."
