Housing Complex Being Raized

One of the nation's first public housing complexes is being turned to rubble.

Demolition began yesterday at Poindexter Tower on the near East side as part of a redevelopment effort by the City and Franklin County. It opened in 1961 as a low-cost apartment complex for the elderly, but was plagued by crime and closed in 2003.
