Philadelphia could be doing more to stop blight, resident says.

Brooklyn (NY) residents have been living with no heat, no hot water, bad electric, and rats — now the slumlords are facing jail if issues are not resolved.  Where was Bill DeBlasio and his Slumlord Watch List?

I think every bad property owner in Baltimore should suffer the same fate as the guy in this article from 1987.

Vacant house burns in Richmond, officials call it “suspicious”.

Beautiful photographs of vacant Detroit.

Cleveland is finding usefulness in its vacant lots.  Baltimore, on the other hand, will let you buy a lot, pay taxes on it for 10 years…but you can’t do anything with it until the 10 years are up.

Newark, Ohio’s “Dirty Dozen” vacant homes to be torn down.

More super-cool news from Cleveland. Remember the gas explosion we wrote about last year?  Residents have decided to turn it into a positive…and a public art project.  LOVE this!
