Looks like another eviction that the neighbors got to before the evicted folks could salvage:

@ Citylover94 - that's a darn quick build going on in Boston.

@ shakman - I managed an apartment building in PG county for a short time, and though not frequent, evictions did occur. The Sheriff officers who accompanied us into the eviction apartments didn't seem too concerned when the passers-by would rummage through the belongings.

Thanks for joining the fun Brizzy.

I have wondered what is under the blue jacket over this guy's right arm?

Gotta say, we don't have a shopping center like this around my house.

Neat idea for a topic!

I didn't see this one posted yet (though I'm sure several others on here know of it). Sampsonia Way, a unique alley in Pittsburgh, has some colorful scenes, especially if you look back to 2008, when locals organized a 'parade' to celebrate the return of the google vehicle to their humble local. Granted, it's all staged, but there's some interesting things to see.

Starting at the west end of the street, a colorful...monster?...piñata?...peeks out from a doorway:


Further down, you see some new millennials moving to the hippest new neighborhood:


Crossing Guards to guide the volumes of alley traffic. Piñata man looks to be in trouble on the right side of the image:


Someone climbing out a window to get in on the action:


The parade, complete with confetti and a marching band, passes by the Mattress Factory:


Not sure what kind of garage start-up is going on here - love-ray laser device?:


Marathon Runners:


At this corner store, note the person dressed as a...ham (I had to zoom in closer to see):


Across the street, the fun continues, with a giant chicken / turkey. Hopefully sans-person inside:


Additionally. here are some of the decorated houses near the Mattress Factory:






The same site, in 2007:

I think they should show up now...although I'm not sure why some of the images are much larger than the others.
