• Tarentum residents: Building visibly leaning appears ready to collapse


    TARENTUM, Pa. - Residents in Tarentum are asking for answers after they said a potentially dangerous building remains untouched.

    In March, officials closed a portion of East Fourth Avenue because the building appeared it could collapse.

    The former laundromat, known locally as the leaning tower, has shifted and is visibly leaning.

    According to those in the area, businesses have been forced to find new entrances for deliveries and garbage collection.

    “I have not seen a body out here, and I don't understand.  I've called everybody involved to try to find out what's going on,” said Nannette Woitas who works nearby.

    The building has been leaning for decades, but was formally condemned about a year ago.
