Crappy Cathedral In Peril
Friday, March 26, 2010 17:20 GMTAUSTIN, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) The fight to save one junky building is underway, and its a serious crapshoot.
The Cathedral of Junk in Austin, Texas around since 1988 is a structure made completely of discarded objects like old bikes, shopping carts, and broken televisions.
After years of delighting tourists and locals, the Cathedral is in danger of being bulldozed to the ground by city officials who insist that owner Vince Hannemann get a permit and certificate of occupancy by Wednesday (Mar. 31).
Hannemann admits it cant be done, and thats real crappy.
Hes hoping to catch a break and has a team of volunteers helping him get the building up to code. Theyre running savethejunk.org to spread the word.
However, theres a real chance the Cathedral will be demolished.
Hannemann laments, A lot of tears will be shed. Itll be a sad day for not only me, but for the entire city of Austin.
