Nice pics!

I see that that building on Orange St. that I was looking at when I was looking at the market a couple years ago is still standing. Does the land bank program work well? I hate the thought of the city losing more rowhouses.

Some clear views of typical matchbox houses composing typical street blocks.

thought I'd post this again, remind me that despite the below zero temperatures now, it does get warmer here. Days are getting longer.
