Update: The house above is gone.
I drove around the St. Louis Place neighborhood on two Saturdays ago, and saw some signs of life among so much desolation. Hebert Street continues its decline, and a street just to the south, showed evidence of a fire from the rear.
I continued on, and found these well-preserved houses on a side street. The on one on the left, with nice Italianate detailing, might still be occupied. Will this property be considered a “legacy property” by Paul McKee?
I’m still amazed at the brazenness of the brick thieves who hit this house right on busy St. Louis Avenue. This house was beautiful, intact, and surely would have made a great home for someone. As it stands, it seems that demolition is its only future.
I assume this six family (or twelve family) building right next door will be hit soon by the the brick thieves. And surely no one will take notice, again.
