A few months ago when I was assisting with a survey of all the vacant homes and abandoned lots in the neighborhood, I was struck by the number of homes vacant or abandoned on Swinburne Street…particularly the number between Broadway and Ashley.
Yesterday, I took photos of each.
Swinburne Street also is home to Saint John Kanty Church and its former school.
The stark contrast between having a beautiful church in the midst of these types of properties is odd the say the least.
