Update: 512 Archer Street

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 […]
