The terrain rises rapidly on the streets heading up towards the College Hill neighborhood. Look at the house on the right, carefully restored.
Up at the top, open lots await.
The infamous old nursing home, shut down for unsanitary conditions, sits as a vacant shell, the graffiti back in full force.
But these stately homes are still occupied and in good condition.
These further down the hill back towards downtown, not so much.
I have no idea what happened to the house below; I might have a picture of it somewhere, but it’s not handy.
And this beautiful building still sits empty, and will probably be torn down completely one day. It was once so much bigger.
