Kodak Park Building Implosions
July 2ND, 2007

The implosion of Building 9 was to me, the better of the two implosions. I went to this implosion as a trial run for Building 23, which was a building I was more familiar with, and one that I thought would be bigger and better. It turns out that Building 9 is actually the larger building. In addition Bldg 9 also contained a lot more concrete than Bldg 23, and as such, produced a much larger dust cloud, and thus, a more spectacular implosion.

I woke up around 6:15 and headed to the site. I expected a large crowd and traffic back ups, so I parked in nearby Maplewood Park and walked over the pedestrian bridge over RTE 104 to the viewing area to the South West of the implosion. There were an estimated 2,000-3,000 people on hand to witness the implosion. Some even stood on top of the Kodak Research Labs to get a birds eye view.

The implosion went off as planned at 8:00AM and kicked up a huge cloud of dust. The dust overwhelemed the viewers directly to the west of the building, and even managed to reach my viewing area. A steady mist of fine concrete and dust particles floated down like snow. Fortunately I had my dust mask with me. Surprisingly the dust cleared up after about 10-15 minutes and you could clearly see the collapsed building site. All went well by the looks of it, except for a few downed trees.
