Games and Lanes finally comes down

At long last, the former Games and Lanes building is no more. Dozens of people gathered on Walnut Street Extension in Agawam to see a demolition team take down the longtime eyesore and public safety concern on July 31. For Mayor Richard Cohen and the rest of the town of Agawam, it marked the end of a frustrating nearly decade-long period of inactivity, thanks to David Peter, president of Site Redevelopment Technologies.
