It had better look good

Estimated value of this address is $790,000. Beautiful property, though, and I'd bet we're not the only ones glad it was spared from the wrecking ball. One other interesting thing about this district is that it indicates that the area is not "hollowed out" in the way that older neighborhoods in Detroit, Gary, and Chicago are. In those cities, you see tons of vacant lots where houses ought to be; it would be interesting to learn that didn't happen in Savannah.

Curb Appeal

All I can say is WOW!

A truly beautiful revival. That Google Street View provides a powerful argument for renovating rather than razing neighborhoods. Thanks for posting.

Still looking good
