I don’t know why, but I have come to find this house fascinating in its ability to survive urban disinvestment, redevelopment and abandonment.
It sits on a small parcel of land, backing up to new in-fill houses that face St. Louis Place Park, and for whatever reason, it has not been demolished. The plywood looks relatively new, as well.
It has a half flounder service out back, as well. But it does not look like it is in very good shape, and has started to collapse.
And then there’s still this garage left just to the south.
