This property is a complete mess — boarded up windows, broken steps and crumbling porch, and the rear yard is full of trash — it’s clear that nobody has been checking on this property or taking care of it for quite some time

This is one of five homes on a sad little block in East Baltimore.  One by one, four families have been driven away by crime and drugs, and the one remaining family is planning to leave as soon as possible.  It’s a tragic tale — one that’s repeated over and over, in so many neighborhoods in Baltimore.  One bad house really can bring down an entire neighborhood, like a cancer left unchecked.  Luckily, the house has been recently placed into receivership — we hope the house finds a new owner soon, and the block can begin to recover
