Albany  --  An empty house that's been a haven for drug activity and prostitution is no longer a problem for one East Albany neighborhood.

Public works crews demolished a house at 910 Easeman Avenue. It had been abandoned for years and neighbors say it was constantly a conduit for illegal activity.

Commissioner Jon Howard says he's glad to see the house come down, but there are hundreds, if not thousands of others that need to be knocked down across the city.  

 "When we allow them to exist, what it does it only brings in the wrong clientele and it certainly would not get economic development to the area when you see a lot of these eyesores in the community such as these bad houses."  

Six more homes are expected to be leveled within the next few weeks.
