This old NCR building is a kind of eyesore on streets of many eyesores in Dayton, Ohio. Look at Salem Avenue from downtown to the Salem Mall. Why this one building has been chosen for demolition is odd but then UD doesn't own a piece of history, they own the building it was made in.

You shouldn't be punished forever, for owning something you can't use.
