The squat cinderblock apartment house at the intersection of 24th and R Streets was demolished today. Yay!
1201 North 24th Street
The destruction of this compound of a house, sitting on a notorious and active intersection, marks a highpoint in the renovation of this embattled area. These blocks of 24th and R Streets have seen the construction of new houses by Better Housing Coalition and other recent demolition, yet still cary a strong legacy of drug dealing and violence.
