Update: The buildings above and below were demolished around the beginning of 2020.
Hebert Street can change from utter devastation and abandonment in the northeastern corner of JeffVanderLou…
…to new signs of life in the Old North St. Louis neighborhood.
Update: I went back to this block in July of 2014 and the winter of 2022.
Continued neglect of large swaths of North St. Louis, in contrast where development has been encouraged, cannot be more stark. While these buildings in Old North are still vacant, they are in a safe neighborhood–brick rustlers do not strike here. If only the same could be said further west on the same street.
