Another Western Ave vacancy

For years Herb Goodman's Auto Sales has been in business at 242 Western Ave at the corner of Riverdale and Western in Allston. Herb still has many cars listed for sale on, but the Western Ave lot is now empty. The Registry of Deeds doesn't show any recent property transactions on Western Ave, but the situation seems a lot like what we saw when Harvard purchased the used car lot at 271 Western Ave in December 2006.

UPDATE: Harvard did not purchase the property and there have been no recent transactions anywhere on Western Ave. It is still owned by the Harold Shoher Trust which also owns Stadium Auto Body and Stadium Gas at 280 Western Ave.
