  • 2215 Jensen is ruff ruff. Anything Jensen is ruff. Quietly as bad a street as anywhere in town. It will be a long time before the near-north side between 45 and 59 going north out of downtown sees a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Lindale Park is not terrible (if you’re willing to pioneer and put up with such things as rail construction, being in a grocery desert, and the high numbers of things like city service buildings and half-way houses that are not far to be found.

    The pictures look about as expected on this one.

  • Memorial Bend is being denuded. Perhaps we should call it Memorial Blender.

  • Lindale Park is not in a grocery dessert. There’s a perfectly servicable Fiesta at Fulton & Patton.

  • Is that a sunken tub surrounded with pot plants? I can’t tell for sure.

    And when I see wood floors like those, makes me cry to think demo. Sure hope they get saved/reclaimed.

  • Someone purchased a home on my street for demolition well over a year ago, and have instead just let the empty house sit there, the driveway storing a flatbed trailer. There must be a law…grrr
