Even if it's been awhile since you've been in Clock Tower, it's a little sad seeing it torn apart. 

Demolition crews began taking down the iconic Rockford conference center Monday morning at 11.

It's the right move, it has been an eyesore for years now, but it's definitely the end of an era. I'm too young to ever have had wild nights at Quark but I do remember going to Sunday brunch at Bellamy's.

Growing up a tennis player, I spent a good amount of time at their indoor courts. The tennis center is still open but who knows what is in store for the location once the new tenants (maybe a casino) moves in.

Thanks to Ken Decoster for letting us use his videos he took at the demolition Monday morning.
