Baltimore High-Rise Housing Project Razed

<i> Associated Press</i>

Six high-rise public housing towers here have been demolished by explosives to make way for new homes, a $115-million project of low-rise apartments slated for completion in 2 1/2 years.

The Lafayette Court buildings, built in the 1950s, had long ago fallen into disrepair. The apartments destroyed Saturday are among scores of ramshackle housing projects being demolished under a Clinton Administration plan to replace buildings it says are warehouses of misery.
