Checking Up On The Ville

I checked in on The Ville, the historic middle class African American neighborhood in the North Side.

Unfortunately, there is still more abandonment, and this strange collapse, which looks like the house is falling into the basement. It is too bad, as it is a rare example of a wood frame house from the early history of the neighborhood.

This is also a super rare wood frame Italianate house, which is also abandoned.
