The 1400 block of Newhouse Avenue is so beautiful, but sadly most of the buildings are abandoned. And just about all of them are still standing! This is just to the north of the improving North Park Place. This could be such a great street again.

What does the spray paint say on that window(s)? in picture 2?
Think it says “If you do bad things. they come back”
You are correct.
Thanks. I couldn’t make out the “bad things they”.
I think this was the block featured in the vernacular drawing in McCue & Peters’ “A Guide to the Architecture of St. Louis” (1989). So sad to see most of it abandoned now.
Sadly it looks like the house in the last picture on the right was destroyed in an explosion with damage to the neighboring houses. https://www.kmov.com/news/its-unbelievable-family-safe-after-explosion-levels-home-in-north-st-louis/article_db7e45c8-f286-11ea-9eab-472ae7fa8087.html
