Destruction & Desecration


The Church of the Nativity, also known as the Ruffin Nichols Memorial African Methodist Episcopal Church.
11th & Mount Vernon Sts., Philadelphia.
Built by Napoleon LeBrun, 1844.

Demolition seems to have begun in 2012, a decision made based on economy.  I stumbled upon the ruins mid-2013 and returned to find it flattened this month.
