Though it looks like it may topple any moment, this building actually contains a burger restaurant. During the first half of the 20th century it was the Wellston terminal for the city's streetcar line. Those lines were eliminated in the '60s in lieu of the current bus system.

It would take a miracle to make that happen. I honestly wish him the best.

I commend him for trying but futile doesn't seem a strong enough word for how hopeless that feat is.

Anyone who wants to try, there are several properties on MLK going up for tax auction for a few grand, on Tuesday 5-20-14, 9a at Civil Courts building. Plenty others in Benton Park, Marine Villa, and Hyde Park. Message me for details.

I strongly agree with Melvin White. When I go to that area of town, all I see is potential. I am sure there are millions of ideas of what to do and how to do it, But...until the crime is under control in N. City, ...people will be reluctant to invest and plant roots there. Unless the investors are those who don't have much to lose. The kids in the area who are graduating high school/college now need to be shown how to do what needs to be done. The new generation will have to be the ones to revitalize the area they grew up in.
