    That has was boarded up in the last two weeks. Looks like it is currently under contract. Sadly I’d much rather have it boarded up that the situation when people were living there. There was about 6 people living in the bottom floor efficiency. The father was in and out of jail and often up to no good. It doesn’t surprise me that it was an out of town owner looking at the way he kept it and boarding it up in the meantime.

    Hopefully the deal closes soon and a great reno is performed.

      Yes it would be nice to see it owned/lived in by people who aren’t in and out of jail and causing problems for the neighbors. Plus, I hate to see row homes being converted to apartments.
