There goes the hood. Now I'm getting all nostalgic for redlining.

1117 E. Spring in red. 

How could the neighborhood association allow this to happen? Wait -- I forgot. City Hall owns the neighborhood association.

Look, just give me that cool million Doug promised, and we'll leave. It might be just enough to buy a house in Northampton MA -- or 25 slumlord properties in NA.

Same house? Gads. I know the family who owned it. Dad died and no one else stepped forward; the rot's been ongoing for a couple of years, but I had no idea it was THAT bad. In all honesty, it doesn't matter to me WHO owns it as long as it can be rehabbed.

Same house.

Which is why it's a great thing that they've built the new apartments downtown in order to address the need of affordable housing alternatives downtown.
