Bethesda building now condemned...but still without roof covering (Photos)

Montgomery County building inspectors downgraded the vacant building at 4820 Auburn Avenue from "Unsafe" to "Condemned" Monday. Neighbors have expressed concern that the building, which lost its roof during a snowstorm this past winter, poses a mosquito threat due to standing water on the premises.

While the building is now condemned, the tarp remains displaced, and the structure could still breed mosquitoes. That is even more concerning due to the spread of the Zika virus into the United States from South America, which is transmitted via the detestable creatures.

So until the tarp is repositioned, the County's work isn't done here yet.

And what a charming view from the neighboring high-rises.

And street people have made it their new home by going through the back courtyard of the Gallery Bethesda.
