Update: The Grand Water was repainted in the summer of 2020.
I came to the sad realization that the entire east side of 20th Street in Hyde Park (some consider this to be College Hill, but I don’t) is abandoned south of the Grand Water Tower. In February, I photographed the other side of the street. Do we really have absolutely no solutions to this? Can we please not knock all of these buildings down now that I’ve shown them here?
Update: The house above was torn down in the summer of 2020.
Update: While I didn’t photograph it at the time, the corner store at the end of the block was destroyed by fire in December of 2022.
