Reminds me of a couple of neighborhoods in Gary that are full of starter-type houses. I'll have to take a few pictures of those neighborhoods myself now.
The historical elements on some of these old places are just beautiful, and that brick house at the corner of 1st and Lyon was always one of my favorites, despite its condition. Can't imagine what it would cost to renovate that one - and would anyone actually move into it given the location?
Yeah, that red brick one is my favorite too... but it wouldn't be as nice without that curved front porch.
When I was a little girl I used to dream of living in the red brick with the curved porch. We used to drive by it on a way to one of my mom's friends houses.
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
