Subject: Piermont News: Worker demolishing landmark funeral home building today

Many of us attended a heck of a lot of funerals at Stevenson's, especially most of Dot's family. Another "landmark" of sorts lost.

Workers today began tearing down the long-empty Stevenson Funeral Home. Neighbors of the building at Hester Street and Piermont Avenue complain that they had no prior notice of the demolition. They fear that dust from the worksite contains asbestos.

Neighbors have been told that the building will be replaced by a smaller, new Victorian-style house and that the property’s architecturally-significant boathouse, destroyed by a truck with failing brakes several years ago, would be rebuilt as an exact replica of the original.

The village thwarted plans to turn the funeral home into a bed and breakfast and, later, law offices when neighbors objected.
