Walnut Park Revisited, Again

Walnut Park is one of those neighborhoods of the city where I am hesitant to post pictures where there is the chance of giving the wrong impression. The area struggles with crime, and has a tragically high murder rate. There is a lot of abandonment.

This church, built in 1930 for example, is ambiguous. I cannot tell whether it is abandoned or not. The lawn is well maintained, but there is no signs of life. I believe it was originally the Salvator United Church of Christ. It closed in 1979.

St. Matthew Lutheran Church sits further up Thekla Avenue.

Another public school comes into view; hopefully this one is not being left open to scrappers.

Some abandonment and resilience comes into view up at Riverview Boulevard.
