Foreclosures and vacancies in North Lawndale

During Joe’s recent tour of North Lawndale with Larry Kimbrough from Breaking Ground, Larry pointed out a handful of unoccupied new-construction homes near Franklin Park that have been sitting vacant for several years.

Larry says some of those buildings might make good long-term investments, but when they sit empty they do more harm than good for the community. First, looters will strip the copper, according to Larry, and then squatters will claim the property.
