As I was taking this photo, I was approached by an elderly woman and her son — “They need to tear that down!”, she said. “Yes ma’am they do.”, I replied. She then inquired whether I worked for the city, and I said that no, I don’t. Her son asked if I was buying the building — he seemed hopeful, and his hopes were quickly dashed when I said that no, I am not buying the building.
Apparently the woman and her son lived in the neighborhood for quite some time, as she regaled me with a list of businesses that had come and gone — it’s now next door to a shiny new-ish Family Dollar, and the building’s in bad shape. “Rain gets in there. The water probably pours in through the roof.” She then asked me to do her a favor. “You send that picture to the city in an email and tell them to tear it down.”
So, ma’am in the bright pink outfit — this post is for you. Trust me, the city will hear about it.
