Kodak Park, the huge industrial complex that dominated Rochester, New York, for more than a century, is getting smaller both figuratively and literally.
As part of an ongoing plant reduction program taking place throughout the year, two major structures are scheduled for implosion this weekend: Building 9, most recently used for color paper finishing, is scheduled for demolition just minutes from now as I write this, at 8:00 a.m. Eastern. Building 23, a former major engineering and design facility, will go down at the same time tomorrow.

Destroying unneeded buildings will save maintenance costs and taxes for the company as it continues to restructure in the new business environment (the link is to a Kodak employee memo posted on APUG).
