Heard through the grapevine that there's a secret study floating around City Hall that has identified dozens of african americans living in the suburbs that want to move back to the 'hood. In the event that doesn't happen, Byron Brown was asked at a recent planning meeting - "Who's going to move in and what happens if they don't sell?" Word is that Byron scanned the room to see if there was any media and suggested that City would simply demolish them!
Very interesting foreclosure information emerging on some of the heavily subsidized "vinyl victorians" just across the street from Sickamore Village on Jefferson...stay tuned. I'll be following this debacle all summer long.
