Update: I checked back in on the houses above in early July of 2018, and they were still sitting in the same half-demolished condition. They are still standing as of the summer of 2019. Also, again in many ways, very little changed when I went back in late summer of 2019.
There looks to be some demolition of the long ago brick rustled houses on St. Louis Avenue just east of Garrison Avenue. It has long been an embarrassing blight.
The streetscape is changing because of the demolitions, and I have a hard time getting my bearings from the last time I was here.
Distant views become open because of now cleared lots.
Sad to see what’s happening even along a major artery. It’s almost all gone now.
I first photographed the devastation in 2011.
