Gradually, chunks of the IBM Country Club complex east of Endicott are collapsing.
Gorick Construction workers began demolition operations at the Watson Boulevard site in Union City on November 8.
Crews using heavy equipment have been busy for the past two weeks demolishing the western portion of the abandoned facility.
Some elements of the former country club that had potential historical significance were salvaged before the demolition project began.
A large crowd showed up at the country club property last week to take advantage of a brick giveaway to get a piece of local history.
Thousands of workers from IBM Endicott, Owego and other regional sites have used the country club facilities for several decades. The club was also open to families of employees.
It is expected that it will take several more weeks to clear the site to make way for a 75-unit building.
A groundbreaking ceremony for the housing project is scheduled for next spring.
