An 1891 twin townhouse, the LRA half has been vacant since 1999. Blairmont bought the other half just last year. Someone saw fit to strip out the upper floor floorboard-ups and windows from both halves. Who would have interest in doing such a thing, I wonder, and why?

It was condemned for demolition in July 2007... only ten days before Blairmont bought it. City records are oddly silent about the house's sales history.

Of note, a recently renovated block of townhouses stands across the street. Children were riding their bikes around me as I photographed. This is not some empty wasteland; it's a neighborhood.
