No one cares about the castles :(

"Lakewood 'Castles' razed
Asbury park press

Work crews this week began to raze the abandoned apartment buildings in Lakewood, known as "The Castles'' because of their striking resemblances to medieval fortresses complete with turrets and battlements.
The buildings are listed on the New Jersey Register of Historic Places and were first erected around the turn of the 20th century.
"I'm sorry to see them go,'' said Sheldon Wolpin, a township historian and chairman of the Lakewood Heritage Commission. "What can I tell you? It's just part of history.''
The complex, just blocks from the Lake Carasaljo, had fallen into serious disrepair in recent years. Neighbors have complained the buildings had become home to vagrants, prostitutes and drug dealers.
A developer will build 10 town houses on the site"

I didnt know there were prostitutes in Lakewood, but damn youd better be charging more for the scenery your clients get along with it!!!!
