There is actual life in Brooklyn, the long suffering first African-American founded community in America. This sturdy church is well maintained and occupied.
Apparently the nearby Venice School District also serves the town, and this nice Modernist school sits nearby. In the distance, the skyscrapers of St. Louis loom in the distance, like they are in another world, which in many ways, they are.
This house, perhaps built in the 1940’s, does not appear to be occupied, but I’m not sure. Sadly, the industry of Brooklyn, if one could call it that, sits on the south side of town, away from the church. Infested with organized crime, its businesses frequently go up in flames in arsons that go unsolved.
