Summer 2001: This is the view along 23rd Street, just north of Cass.

I don't know what happened here. Were there more Pruitt-Igoe-style housing projects here? Wholesale clearance that never got rebuilt? Or is this simply the final result of a long, slow deterioration? My impression is that it's the latter.

Just to the right of the top image, on the 2200 block of Howard, is this nearly-destroyed house. The front elevation collapsed some time between the first photo and the second, taken in January 2003.

Summer 2004.
