Imagine living in one of these occupied homes, next to a structurally unsound vacant.  Note the red placards placed by the fire department to indicate a structural hazard — would you want that home as your next-door neighbor?

413, 419, and 423 Whitridge Avenue, unsafe vacants that could collapse — dotted between occupied homes.

Owner of 413 Whitridge Avenue:  Bruno Mpoko-Grela, PO Box 2949, Montgomery Village, MD 20886 or 17 Granite Place, #380, Gaithersburg, MD 20878

Closeup of 419 Whitridge — the rear of this home, and the roof, have caved in. Only the front facade remains.
