I'm always fascinated by how quickly greenery can completely take over a house. And there are so many here that have been completely overgrown.

Others, in more affluent neighborhoods, want rid of the eyesores that are abandoned homes. Spraypainted in the plywood covering the front door of the one abandoned home in the neighborhood, was this message:

Fix or demo!
(It's interesting because people in poorer neighborhoods are living with probably 30% abandoned homes on their block.)
