Then and now on Mosby Street

Selden Richardson sent in these photos of 809 Mosby Street from 2002. That whole side of the street was mostly vacant in the years following, and a number of houses were demolished in in 2006 and in 2007.

The house at 809 Mosby was sold in 2007 and renovated soon after.

The two adjacent houses at 805-807 Mosby Street were renovated in 2009, and later nominated for a Golden Hammer Award.

I love that house! I took pictures of it as well while it was being renovated and I did that block before the demolitions because I found those houses very architecturally interesting. People always focus on the high-styled houses, but we are running out of houses that look like those did in that block. I wish that apartment building could have been demolished. It just doesn’t belong there.

Wasn’t that where Coco had her place of “business”?

I wonder what the standards are for winning that award. The renovations at 807 and 805 Mosby st. were pretty cheap and the one building that I know of is slowly crumbling, it has serious foundation issues. I agree with Cadeho about the apartment building, I wish it wasn’t there too. I also wish someone would do something with the vacant lot’s between that dilapidated Mosby st market and Carrington . A lot of people use that area to do their drugs/sell drugs or go over to the steps on Carrington and use it as a public bathroom every single day. Kids play on those stairs and on those lots. Then you have the people who come and dump out a bunch of cat food for the alley cats. I understand they want to feed the cats and all but you are also making the rat problem in the area worse.
