Rust Belt 2010
July 27, 2010
Slavic Village is a neighborhood that has been hit hard by the mortgage crisis. Predatory lending and foreclosure have wiped many homes off the streets as the city has become aggressive at demolishing homes that are abandon and derelict.
This street, which just two years ago had 30 some homes on it full of life and families, is today a long vacant lot as the city has leveled every home on it.
