vintage apartment building that was on the 4000 block of Sheridan, next to Nick's, for nearly 100 years is the capricious wrought iron fence and the doorbells connected to nothing, in front of an empty lot.
Update: The February newsletter from Buena Park Neighbors says, regarding the January quarterly meeting--
"Lot Limbo. Morgan Murphy, Thorek's compliance officer, disappointed many in attendance when he reported that 'there's nothing on the drawing board' at this time for the vacant lots at Irving Park and Sheridan, which are owned by the hospital. However, Thorek has every intention of building on that site in the future. The big question is when, and according to BPN President Bill Petty, the estimated time could be anywhere from two to five years.
On the plus side, Morgan said the hospital is considering BPN's proposal for a temporary community garden on the site. Bill told attendees that 30 to 50 raised bed plots with wood frames could be constructed on the lot for less than $10,000, with some of that cost recovered by renting the plots to the community. 'Irving and Sheridan is our front door,' Bill said. 'It's the gateway to Buena Park. To let it sit empty and become infested with weeds and garbage is unacceptable both to us and Thorek Hospital.'"
