More Poverty Porn my funky hood #6

Is it really messed up that I take pleasure in the fact that houses like this are on the same street as houses that have sold to Gentry for  a million?  Well. ok, maybe it is.

I just think rapid gentrification is destabilizing and i like that the funky folk act as a kind of anchor to slow things down and help keep it at least a little real.

In case you are wondering why there are only  photos of buildings, some of my  longer term neighbors have an innate distrust of people taking their pictures, even the ones i’ve been  friends with a long time.  I know better

than to put them on the spot and even ask..
