I called this post “Randomness Around St. Augustine’s” because that best describes what is happening around the church which is getting a second chance on life, as I wrote about yesterday. Above, Central High School, captured out the window of the circular stair tower of the church, is in bad shape, and is slated for demolition. The corner of Jefferson and Hebert is just out of view to the left above.
Randomly, the thick underbrush at the southwest corner of Sullivan Avenue and Parnell Street has been cleared. It looks like pictures I’ve seen of tropical rainforests being burned down in Brazil. Yes, that’s a house in the far right background that was destroyed by brick thieves.
And then, as far as I can tell, the row houses on either side of this house were torn down randomly, since the survivor has a different owner and therefore it couldn’t be demolished. I’ve seen this before, years ago. Sure leaves a viable building behind, real estate-wise, doesn’t it?
