I drove by Harrison School years ago, and it’s deeply depressing to see how bad of shape it is in nowadays. In other words, it is totally trashed, and just about all of its windows are knocked out (protective fencing on some windows gives the appearance that some glass is intact).
It’s a nice stout building, and I’m sure it could be fixed up, but the surrounding neighborhood is in rough shape. It is really sad.
A repair shop has decided that since nobody from SLPS is noticing, he’s going to just go ahead and use a portion of the old playground for his own private junkyard.
Across the street, there is a row of wood frame houses, showing that there was some very early development out this way. Many of the houses are burned out or abandoned.
Around the corner onto Green Lea Place, there are many nice houses, but there are so many abandoned buildings mixed in between the carefully maintained ones.
There is just a shocking amount of litter on the ground, too.
