Mario Lanza’s Birthplace Demolished

I just discovered that Mario Lanza’s boyhood home, located at 636 Christian Street, is being demolished to make way for two multi-family homes. How is it that the home of  a famous opera singer who made movies in Hollywood, and has a historical marker be bulldozed by a developer? It’s a damn shame.

More photos behind the cut.
