Three Four-Familes, Hyde Park

Bellefontaine and North Side 067

Man, I don’t remember these three identical four-family apartment buildings being in such bad shape.  Regardless, they are not looking great.

This earlier photo from 2012 seems to show the buildings in better shape, but I could have been wrong.  It’s sad regardless, because the unique brick tone and the beauty of the stellar masonry work will be lost forever.

  1. I used to pass these every Saturday on my way to Cornerstone Cafe when I lived in Old North. Sad to see them this far gone now.

  2. Ooh, where is this? I love the one that’s just a shell, photographically. The reality of it does make me sad. 🙁
