When I see living art like this falling into nothing I don't understand why most people don't think it is important.

Have you seen the photo of how the street looked when the houses were new? [link]

That's where I want to live!

I think this house could be fixed up, the porch roof is pretty much the worse part
(and maybe the foundation XD)

I'm sure you could own it for a fraction of its potential value. I'm sure it would be a major commitment to make it whole again, though.

I love these stephen king houses, esp in Philly,
and all your other shots of Philly I've seen on DA...
My Dad grew up on Philly - somewhere on Roosevelt Ave,
and graduated Germantown HS in '25 - I have been told how that 'hood
has changed somewhat since then...

Thanks!

The Germantown section of Philly -- and the nearby Mt. Airy section -- are neighborhoods that have been up and down and up and down again so many times it's not even funny, anymore. As a result, there are just piles and piles of awesome, vintage rubble up here in the Northeast corner on Philadelphia. That's part of what inspires me. Exploring this neighborhood is like slowly realizing you are living in the rubble of an ancient civilization.

It actually wasn't as horrible as I feared it might have been. I had an excellent conversation with a gentleman from the neighborhood, who was very interested in what I was up to in a purely curious way. I would go back for more shooting on that street again.

I can't believe there are actually houses that look like this XD

What amazes me is that, when new, the entire block was houses like that! Now there are five left. All the rest are just gone.

Well, that's how the city evolves. Here in Santiago, for the Centenary in 1910, many buldings and houses were thrown down and replaced with a more... french look. They look amazing in my opinion, but much of the original city was lost, so to speak.

In Philadelphia, buildings are mostly lost to neglect. Large sections of the city are empty, because so many people moved to the suburbs. Other US cities, like Detroit, have similar problems.
