Flooded With Memories

It was just about a year ago that the Mosa Building on Leland suffered a catastrophic flood, driving out some businesses and leading to the entire building going into foreclosure, ending up in Housing Court, and being put into receivership. Well, everything old is new again.

From a reader: "Several concerned neighbors have called about yet another flood at the former Mosa bldg. Police were on the scene moments ago [Sunday evening], trying to sort out whether responsibility lies in the hands of the new management company or the court-appointed stewards of the bldg ... or at least that's what I understood as a bystander."

Another reader tells us that police and firemen were on the scene for quite a while, trying to get into the building, presumably to stop the flood before the building suffered even more damage.

Let's hope that things turn out better this time, now that the building is in the hands of a receiver rather than an absentee landlord.


  1. The water was still pouring down from the ceiling as of 10AM this morning. Be careful if you walk in front of this building as the sidewalks may ice over from the water seepage.

  2. Are the operating businesses affected at all?
