After years of dispute over code violations, a dilapidated apartment building where accused presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald briefly lived is coming down.

Oswald Under Arrest

Jane Bryant, whose Align LP owns and is trying to sell the property at 600 Elsbeth St. in north Oak Cliff, is under a court order to raze the structure by Friday. And Monday afternoon she was there as a worker removed bricks from its outer walls.

Bryant, who agreed to the order in May, said she hopes to hire a demolition contractor soon and is trying to salvage and sell the building’s hundreds of bricks in the meantime.

The building has been boarded up and the site surrounded by a chain-link fence for years.

When Oswald was arrested after the assassination of President Kennedy, he lived in boarding house on North Beckley Avenue.
