It’s hard to believe sometimes that the JeffVanderLou neighborhood once held around 20,000 people considering that it is now one of the most decimated areas of the city. But here and there are houses that show the density of what once was.
Wild, unkempt lots sit next to well-maintained, owner-occupied homes.
And then, there are whole rows of houses that are in various states of board-up, abandonment and deterioration.
There are wonderful surprises, as well, such as these two large houses that sit by themselves.
