This property used to be a blighted eyesore, owned by the same person since 2006 — it appeared on the blog in July of 2010.

Finally, the owner had the good sense to tear it down earlier this year, and it’s no longer a haven for drugs and stolen goods. ¬†Interestingly, my own home was burglarized in early 2008, and months later I found out that some of my belongings were stashed in this house right after the thieves stole everything of value that they could manage to carry away while I was at work. ¬†Many other neighbors were burglarized at the same time, and my guess is their belongings ended up here, too.

Can’t say I’m sorry to see this home is no longer here.
