• Leaning building in Tarentum prompts road closure


    TARENTUM, Pa. - Part of East Fourth Avenue in Tarentum is closed because there’s fear a building will collapse.

    The former laundromat is known as the leaning tower.

    “It’s only a matter of time.  That thing just looks really unstable and it just gets more sideways as time goes on,” said E.J. Vasis who works nearby.

    According to our news partners at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the building has shifted almost an inch over the past month.

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

    The borough has ordered that the owner bring the building down this week or face fines.

    East Fourth is closed in the area of Wood Street.
