AMBRIDGE, Pa. —
Residents who were kicked out of a filthy and deplorable Ambridge building last week were allowed back inside Monday for the last time.
Ambridge code enforcement officials opened the Merchant Street building for a few hours Monday so people who lived there could get their things out.
Authorities condemned the building on Thursday after finding several code violations. All of the residents were forced to leave.
Nearby business owners said the landlord had plenty of time to straighten up the building, and they agree with police that the building was a nuisance.
“They should have shut it down years ago. I love Ambridge and this is going to help us,” an Ambridge resident said.
The owner of the building’s daughter told Channel 11’s Amy Marcinkiewicz that she’s embarrassed by the situation.
