On Elsie Place...

Walking around Ada and Harwood Place with Stevan this afternoon. Part of the conversation included reflections on craftsmanship, architectural style, urban design and settlement patterns. We both sort of marvelled at these two houses, side by side on Elsie Place. I'm about ready to start a Wikipedia entry for "vinyl victorians" give me a few days...

Maybe I'm missing something but I don't understand why the City of Buffalo owns properties and then lets them sit and deteriorate/collapse??
Why not just fix them up and sell them at cost to lower income families or rich families for that matter.
