Here’s what it looks like when an entire city block is torn down.
Sun reporter Justin Fenton writes (with photos by Amy Davis):
Pity poor Lansing Avenue. One block and about 20 homes just off Broadway and North Avenue was all city planners gave it, and it couldn’t even sustain that. Residents say it was a decent place to live until the drugs came, which also led to shootings and set fires.
The good residents got fed up, the bad ones didn’t care, everyone moved out, and nature took over.
