Alice Ball Still Standing
The Alice Ball House is not coming down today and it's not coming down tomorrow. The 90-day moratorium on demolition of the house expires today, which means that as soon as the owner is ready, it can be demolished (a couple of earlier posts about the situation are here and here).
The Alice Ball House was designed by Philip Johnson and sits, visible to all, on Oenoeke Ridge Road, in New Canaan, Connecticut. When it actually will come down, or even if it will, I can't say. But I'll have a better idea tomorrow morning.
Last week I asked the owner, Cristina Ross, if I could email her a few questions about her plans for the house and the property, and she responded by inviting us for a tour. We're meeting her there tomorrow morning. -- TA
