Hemorrhaging historic housing on Hawthorne
I stopped blogging because I couldn’t keep up with the demolitions; I neither had time to visit the sites nor the brain energy to face the depressing downslide of affordability coupled with the skyrocketing rents and property values. In August, I heard that the foursquare-style house on SE Hawthorne Blvd just east of 34th was going to be demolished. This is right by where I live. There was an initial protest, but then nothing happened and nothing kept happening till yesterday. I will post a few pictures from yesterday and today with descriptions.
