A murder caught in the act

I saw this photo on Grovite Luke Fronefield's Instagram account. He gave me permission to share it here along with his text. It's the "Father Knows Best" house that was at 3600 Hibiscus, across from Plymouth Congregational Church.

Children watch as another "old" beautiful home in the Grove is torn down...along with dozens of trees. The trees were cut down without permits. After all, what's $1,000 per tree fine to a developer making millions on the deal??? This lot will be subdivided and so there will be two or three homes where there was previously one. It's the same fate for two other properties up the street. As home prices in Miami and elsewhere skyrocket, Coconut Grove is experiencing unprecedented "development" at the hands of developers and real estate agents and investors and unscrupulous buyers---all of whom are attracted to the Grove because of the incredible tree canopy and natural environment, and yet seem to have no problem destroying this tranquil oasis they're seeking. McMansions and other towering nouveau riche cement blocks do not belong in the Grove. Think about what you're building, people. MORE IMPORTANTLY, THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE TAKING DOWN.

Below are a couple of photos I had, after and before.
