ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Crews were out Thursday continuing the process of tearing down the siding on the Downtown Rochester building after some of it came off last month.

They were working on the side of the building facing Chestnut Street Thursday afternoon. The siding on the section of the building facing Elm Street is what came tumbling down on April 21. Thankfully, no one was hurt and no cars on the street were hit.

The 107-year-old building used to be the Richford Hotel, but is now vacant.

The city said it will hold the building’s owners responsible for any work needed for cleaning and repairs.
