This building has been abandoned since I was a little kid. Unlike many of the other abandoned buildings in the city, it’s nowhere near the bombed out buildings from WWII, nor is it a crumbling heap that’s structurally unsound. I never knew why this building sat there uninhabited, and there were a few times through the years we almost hopped the fence to poke around.
It makes me sad…to see this building this way. It’s always made me sad. I used to stare at this balcony and imagine how beautiful this house was when it was done…before falling into this state.
