The area of Cleveland now called 'Slavic Village' is in shambles. It is nationally known by journalism reports to have been hit hard by the housing/mortgage fiasco. Many buildings have been demolished, there are many empty lots, other buildings are vacant, some have been torched, others are condemned and are awaiting removal. The major roads cutting through the neighborhood were and are terrible. Some of those roads have seen long needed resurfacing. Fleet Avenue is in a multi-year tear up, and has long been one way. So this year (the third) East 54th (between Fleet and Mound) had four houses open last weekend to see artists unleashed. I have a few fotos of the best outward presentation.
